We've had a chat with Hattie Houston about her exciting fashion range Destello, to find out her inspiration behind the collection and what beautiful new items we have to look forward to in the coming months.
Hi Hattie, how are you?
Hello. I’m fabulous! I’m still overwhelmed by the excitement and buzz around Destello. It really has been a dream come true.
How long have you wanted to launch a fashion range?
I have always wanted to do something within fashion, and I have dabbled throughout the years. I was a fashion buyer for a jewellery store I worked at some years ago and was able to travel to Paris and see the latest trends.
What inspired the name?
Destello is the Spanish word for flash. I think of it as a flash of light, like a star. The whole reason I wanted to go into fashion was because of my mum. She was the modern-day Grace Kelly in my eyes. She taught me how it was important to have core staple items in my wardrobe that never date. In honour of my mum Daryl, I named the brand Destello.
That’s really touching Hattie. Is that the sentiment you want to get across?
Absolutely. Destello is the brand for every woman, designed by a woman for making you feel special and confident. They say ‘fashion is a way to introduce yourself without having to say a word’. With Destello, you will feel like a star.
What’s in the range?
Destello is all things accessories. From hats and scarves to ponchos and handbags, with many more coming soon. I collect handbags like some people collect shoes! I can never have enough; I’m the sort of person who has the same style in every colour!
Do you have a fashion icon?
I love Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Kate Moss, Stella McCartney and Lorna Luxe. They each inspire me in a different way. These women have proven their fashion choices and have stood the test of time with their designs.
How can people follow the range?
You can follow me online on Facebook (@hattiegreenwoodpresenter) and Instagram (hattiepresenter). I love sharing photos of the range, plus you’ll see the occasional photo of my ragdoll, Bear!
