Hope & Ivy is a contemporary British fashion brand created by Beth Chilton and Sarah Sleightholm. Epitomised by beautiful embroidery and hand-drawn prints, Hope & Ivy pieces exude confidence and femininity with a bohemian edge.
Beth and Sarah's friendship was formed over a mutual love of beautifully crafted dresses, delicate embroidery, rich textures and a shared desire to create amazing, must-have pieces that you can dance ‘til dawn in.
With Sarah’s background of designing embroideries and prints for high-profile fashion clients and Beth’s experience of managing and producing fashion brands, they each bring their own unique perspective to Hope & Ivy.
Now based in East London, Beth and Sarah travel all around the world seeking inspiration for the Hope & Ivy collections. From print libraries in New York to embroidery markets in India, the collections are rich with far-flung inspirations and intricate details.
All of the embroideries and prints in the collection have been hand-crafted and overseen by Sarah using artisan techniques, resulting in a unique collection of dresses, jumpsuits and separates crafted with love.
The Hope & Ivy girl radiates hedonistic bohemianism. Whether she’s dancing barefoot at a beach wedding in Ibiza, sipping champagne at a soirée in the country or dressed to kill at a London cocktail party, Hope & Ivy pieces can speak a thousand words so she doesn’t have to. The collections are designed to be cherished and worn time and time again.
