ABOUT Gilda & Pearl
Calling goddesses, pampered princesses, burlesque cuties, high-heeled beauties, muses, minxes, spoilt mademoiselles, femme fatales and vintage belles!
Born from a desire to dress up and inspired by the glamorous sirens of classic film, the award-winning Gilda and Pearl creates seductive lingerie to love.
Now in its fourth year, Gilda & Pearl has been featured across national press and found its way into celebrity boudoirs, yet every piece is still designed, made and handfinished in the UK. We use traditional techniques to fit and construct every piece- no two items are exactly the same.
We choose our fabrics very carefully, and we make every item in the United Kingdom, which helps to preserve our traditional skills and allows us to ensure that everyone who makes Gilda & Pearl lingerie is treated fairly.
When you order from gildapearl.co.uk, almost all of our pieces are handmade to order for you - we think that's true luxury! Orders over £50 will arrive beautifully wrapped in our signature giftbox, exclusive to gildapearl.co.uk.
Since every item can be made to order, please contact us if you would like us to make pieces to measure, change colours, or discuss commissions. You can also look at our Bespoke page for further information.
Gilda & Pearl offers ultra-desirable, one-of-a-kind lingerie, made to be seen. You'll notice the attention to detail, soft-to-touch silk satins, chiffons and ribbons which combine to create our one-of-a-kind lingerie to love!
About The Designer
Diane Houston's obsession with detail, coupled with a love for exquisitely feminine pieces, fine fabrics and traditional crafting techniques, translated into her own lingerie label in 2008.
The name 'Gilda & Pearl' refers to her inspirations and favourite things. Gilda is the beautiful, brazen femme fatale played by Rita Hayworth in the 1946 film of the same name, and Pearl refers to something which is exquisitely beautiful to look at, never mass produced.
Encapsulating everything that makes the wearer feel feminine, empowered, beautiful and desirable, Gilda & Pearl continues to be loved, nurtured and developed by Diane, with the help of a small but dedicated team.
Gilda & Pearl has graced hotlists and wishlists in the UK and abroad, and it continues to grow.
