Interning at Gilda & Pearl is as luxury an experience as interns can have. Mayfair offices, pink champagne and trying on beautiful underwear - what more could you want from an internship? The day starts off with a nice cup of tea along with some retail research and browsing the new trends shown at LFW, which was near to the studio.
We’re a small close-knit team and the role is hands-on, so we’ve already learnt loads! We were lucky enough to help with the photoshoot for our new diffusion brand, Diane Houston, (it’s launching mid October so don’t miss it!) and have already been keeping an eye on the pieces we want. They’re all so fun and fresh! Working with our eCommerce sales means we have to check fits so that we can give our customers accurate information, plus it lets us learn what customers react strongly to.
Our favourite pick from the Gilda & Pearl range is the Ava. We love how sultry, yet sophisticated the pieces are, whilst the black and white colour ways still make it easy to wear. Our favourite pick from the Diane Houston line definitely has to be Vivien. The range injects colour through vibrant cassis and jade for AW17, and we love how it manages to be both playful and elegant. We especially love the Vivien babydoll - if only we could get away with wearing it out!
