Day 6 of the sheerluxurylingerie interview with Diane Houston, founder of luxury lingerie British design house Gilda & Pearl and Diane talks about finding inspiration whilst travelling.
Tara: Do you find inspiration when travelling?
Diane:Yes, definitely. Though I’m inspired by the colours, shapes and styles I see (and the relaxing!), I think mostly I get inspired when I see traditional techniques being used- it can be anything, from traditional working methods on rubber plantations in Brazil, to textile dyeing in Cambodia. I’m just back from a trip to Sri Lanka went I went to a small bobbin lace-making factory on the coast. It was set up by a group of women after the Tsunami, so that they could meet and work on traditional skills together, and sell their work. I got huge inspiration from that.
