West Texas Glam Shoot, Brand Expansion and A New Fashion Feeling at Fashion Diva Couture

West Texas Glam Shoot, Brand Expansion and A New Fashion Feeling at Fashion Diva Couture

Spring is here and so is a new fashion feeling at Fashion Diva Couture boutique showing off a few of their new Spring arrivals in a Western Glam photoshoot shot in the Chihuahuan Desert plateau of Marfa, Texas. Stepping out of her fashion element, we caught up with Grecia Dilley, boutique founder, to talk about this unique concept that came about by fashion photographer, Saige Thomas , as well as running her business during the pandemic. Although the pandemic nearly shut down many small business around the world, Dilley continued to provide her clients a safe and private experience at her intimate showroom while also generating new and exciting ideas to expand her brand to offer plus-size apparel.

Fashion Diva Couture brand is well known for unique bandage dresses, and flirty ruffled outfits that embody a Miami and LA fashion feeling. With bodices and waistlines that hug your every curve, this boutique offers customers the empowering feeling of femininity and sensuality of an upscale lifestyle. We sat down with the San Antonio staple to catch up on everything new and what’s in store for the next chapter.
SLTV: Hi Grecia, we’re very excited to catch up with you to hear all about what you’ve been up to since the pandemic and this unique photoshoot moment in Marfa, Texas. Can you tell us what that experience was like? What was special about this place to you? 
GD: Marfa Texas is an eclectic little city in the middle of nowhere, but it has its own fashion flare.  It’s very Vogue to see unexpected contrasts of fancy and casual west Texas flare. Usually, dirt roads and rundown streets don’t mix with sequins, but it is beautiful to see when one compliments the other by its simplicity.

SLTV: We have come to love your brand that embodies a zesty upscale lifestyle. Tell us, how different was this photoshoot concept from all your others for your Brand, Fashion Diva Couture?
GD: I have never had a fashion photoshoot for my brand in Marfa Texas, I’m so grateful to have been included in this project. I believe that pictures are fairytales told through lenses, garments, and beautiful bodies, and that is how I envisioned my brand here at Marfa.

SLTV: What styles did you bring and what inspired you to bring those styles to this particular photoshoot?
GD: We brought sequins and a whimsical flair to this shoot. It’s like imagining an over-the-top fashion girl trapped in a small city in the middle of West Texas surrounded by nothing, yet refusing to conform to her surroundings. Bending the rules feels gratifying.

SLTV: Undoubtedly, the pandemic has caused many small businesses to sadly shut their doors, however, thankfully Fashion Diva Couture was able to remain safe and continued to empower their customers one style at a time. We are beyond inspired and so glad you are still bringing your luxury flare to the fashion industry here in Texas through your showroom. How has it been since the pandemic? 
GD: Well since starting my boutique back in 2015 with only 30 dresses in my home, I always envisioned having a large storefront, but I am so grateful I stuck to the business of providing great quality service to my private clientele at my showroom. In the first few months, like all business, I was shut down, however, once people felt safe to venture out and shop again, I re-opened my showroom and continued to provide my boutique services, which are by appointment only, I believe this was my saving grace from the pandemic.

SLTV: This is great news and we are so glad you were able to re-open safely while the pandemic is still among us. During this time many business owners have also been able to reflect, pivot, and make changes to their businesses. Are there any new ideas and ventures for Fashion Diva Couture you’d like to share?
GD: Yes, I am excited to say I have been thinking about expanding my collections to offer plus-size options for my customers. I have had many people mention they would like to buy my items however, I have only offered selected sizes. I truly want to add more inclusion to my brand and will be reaching out to my potential customers to get their opinion on some styles.
