Gilda & Pearl at House of Fraser

Gilda & Pearl is one of Britain’s leading luxury lingerie brands. Run by Diane Houston, a graduate of the College’s business incubator unit, the brand is stocked worldwide and regularly features in glossy fashion magazines.

An award-winning label, all Gilda & Pearl products are designed in Scotland and manufactured by hand in the UK. The business has grown from a one-woman business that in the early stages was supported by Glasgow Clyde College’s creative industries incubator hub, to a major international luxury lingerie brand.

Gilda & Pearl recently received Scottish EDGE (Encouraging Dynamic Growth Entrepreneurs) support of £50,000 that will allow the company to significantly increase turnover through:

  •  Participation at trade shows
  •  Reducing garment production costs
  •  Developing e-commerce
  •  Staff recruitment
  •  IP/brand protection.

In the run up to Valentine’s Day, Gilda & Pearl’s beautiful products will be stocked in House of Fraser Glasgow. The pop up shop will run from Thursday 6 to Thursday 13 February and staff will be on hand to provide husbands and boyfriends with shopping advice.
