Interview below taken from The Daily Lady…
Each month, The Daily Lady interview a business lady or gentleman. This time we talked with business lady Celine Brinkgreve, co-owner of Deblon Sports, a luxury sports wear brand that originated in Brazil.
On a rainy February day, I had an appointment with the beautiful and inspiring business lady Celine Brink Greve. We discussed her busy life as a top model who also leads (together with partner Marjolein) a beautiful luxury sportswear brand, Deblon Sports.
We meet at an Asian restaurant Sing Sing, where we end up together in a very nice conversation. Over three hours, our talk includes her meeting with Nicole Kidman, the five languages she speaks, the love of her life and about her motivation to create an international sports brand…
What is the mission of your business?
Deblon Sports wants women to feel beautiful and proud during exercise. Therefore, we offer luxury sportswear that has a very feminine body and flattering fit.
Who are your customers?
Deblon Sports focuses on women with a healthy lifestyle that value quality and style. In addition, of course, retailers such as Bijenkorf and a small boutique in London.
What is your role within the company?
I am, amongst other things, responsible for creating the collections and production in Brazil and everything that comes with that. So I travel regularly to Rio de Janeiro, where I visit the factory and sort out the photo shoots for our new collections. I also find it important to keep busy with the sales in the business and of course PR.
How have you grown the business?
I strongly believe in the power of your product!
Where do you see your company in 5 years?
International expansion to major cities such as Paris, New York and we will have our own shop!
Who or what is your greatest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration is life and people with positive energy.
What’s your business tip?
Keep dreaming and creating beautiful things.
We’re so proud of Celine and are looking forward to her new collection arriving
in Biondi Boutique, Chelsea, soon.
