Bespoke lingerie by Gilda and Pearl, handmade lingerie from the U.K. Diane Houston is the designer and the name Gilda and Pearl comes from two of Diane’s 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.
