Desiree Noisette is the founder of Cerulean Blu and her hopes are to bring the tropical vibes to everyday life. This year Desiree will bring paradise through her resort wear line to Fashion Week Tampa Bay!
Here are some interesting facts about Desiree!
Favorite piece of clothing or accessory right now?
My favorite, go-to piece of clothing right now is my mint scalloped-edge tank top. It’s a sample from my new collection, but I cannot stop wearing it. It goes with everything, layers like a champ and will be a perfect transition piece into fall/winter. It’s my new classic tank.
Why did you pursue a career in fashion? If you weren’t a designer, what else would you be doing?
Fashion is actually my second career. I used to be a construction law attorney at a firm in Tampa. I got involved in fashion because I believe fashion has the power to help women feel confident and beautiful. If I were not involved with fashion, I would probably start a new project – I have an entrepreneurial spirit.
What is the inspiration for your upcoming collection?
My upcoming collection is inspired by the woman in search of paradise. I feel like we have it in St. Pete – in our community, the landscape, the beautiful ocean – and I believe my collection reflects our lifestyle.
Three words to describe your new collection?
Beauty & tropical sophistication.
Favorite place to get coffee or tea?
Banyan Coffee & Tea in St. Pete – they have THE BEST eggs, bacon and mochas.
Favorite place to travel/vacation?
Right now, Puerto Rico is my favorite place to vacation. It is where my husband proposed and I found out I was pregnant with my little boy, AJ. We have beautiful memories on that island.
Do you have a secret talent?
I can moonwalk.
The company’s flagship retail boutique is located at 400 Beach Drive, Suite 161 in Downtown St. Petersburg, Florida
