We are very excited to announce the first day of our interview with designer Diane Houston, the wonderful Scottish founder of Gilda & Pearl. http://www.sheerluxurylingerie.com/gilda-pearl.html/ We are very proud to stock Gilda & Pearl's exquisite, vintage inspired, classically sensual and elegant luxury lingerie at www.sheerluxurylingerie.com
Tara Blackman: Does anyone or anything inspire your wonderful designs?
Diane Houston: I think the idea of that sassy, beautiful femme fatale that Rita Hayworth played in the 1946 film Gilda still inspires me. She’s so gorgeous, vivacious, glamourous and sexy, but not overtly so. It’s kind of a flirtation, a suggestion – done with such class. Her wardrobe for the film was made from the most luxurious fabrics, and it helped her to become known as ‘the ultimate femme fatale’. Gilda & Pearl is about femininity, about the sheer pleasure of beautiful things, but it is also mindful of true beauty- for example that it is made ethically here in the UK. The ‘pearl’ part of the label’s name refers to something exquisite, that is never mass-produced. 

The interview will continue tomorrow...
