BTS: AW19 Pyjama Party
Guess what we are shooting…
After the success of our AW19 launch night, we couldn’t resist getting some of the girls back together. The lovely Gemma Gregory and Tara Griffin collaborated with us on this super fun shoot to get the desired shots of our brand-new nightwear collection!
Sorry for keeping it secret- our pyjama project has been something we have been working on and perfecting for quite a while now. We are boldly bringing the eclectic prints of our statement dresses to the bedroom. Of course, we have filled the debut collection with classic vintage charm and injected our signature fantastical floral inspirations. This is sleepwear with a unique but beautiful Hope & Ivy twist. And the best place to show them off has to be a Pyjama party, right?

The shoot took place in our Directors Beth Chilton's utterly stylish East London townhouse. With homely features throughout, it was the perfect pad for a cosy pyjama party (and a suitable hiding place from the relentless London rain). As all good pyjama parties must do– there was dancing on the bed, pillow fights and plenty of posing in the gorgeous freestanding tub.
All the pyjama party fun unfolding.
Popcorn and PJ’s was a nostalgic combination we had to honour at our little party. Our lovely models were kindly provided with the ultimate slumber party snacks by Joe & Seph. Gourmet salted caramel popcorn is the most scrumptious of mid shoot treats!
On hand, to capture all the fun, was our brilliant photographer Natasha Hicks. Her work possesses all the vivacity and creativity that Hope & Ivy has encompasses and adores. Unquestionably, Natasha captured the fun spirit of the day while picking up all the delicate details of our fabulous new nightwear collection.

The picture-perfect pyjama party wouldn’t have been possible without our amazing hair and make up artist, Aga. Bringing all the glamour to the shoot, Aga is exceptional at her work and nails every look she puts her hand to. Her magic touch always has a subtle softness and perfectly enhances a natural glow. Her professional portfolio is filled with beautiful work - https://www.agamakeup.co.uk/ .

As we had the dream team on board with us – we interrupted the Pyjama Party to take advantage of the fantastic location and shoot some more of our AW19 pieces. The gorgeous Gemma and Tara absolutely stunned as they posed in elegant midi dresses and some new party season styles. Hope & Ivy is welcoming in autumnal tones with red florals, deep velvets and bohemian embroidery features. How divine are some of these pieces? And these are just the BTS shots!
