Chelsea Flower Show
The majority of the themes featured cascading creatures of the deep made out of flowers, our favourite was an amazing octopus designed for the KIKI McDonough store front. As this year’s theme for the festival was ‘Under the Sea’ it highlighted the beauty of the underwater world and the need to conserve and protect our oceans.
After a quick pop in the shops and bite to eat we made our way to the Chelsea Flower Show, where leading designers exhibit their latest creations!
If you haven’t heard of it, the Chelsea Flower Show is the go-to event for stunning floral displays, whilst giving you the opportunity to do a spot of shopping at the same time! Top that off with some tea, cake and a glass of Pimm’s then you’ve got yourself a visually stunning, quintessentially British day out.
The show had some exquisite displays, which our print designer will be putting straight into inspiration for next Spring. We’ll be using these flowers to create illustrations and patterns that will be worked in to for our new season dresses so keep your eyes peeled!
We even found a Hope & Ivy customer amongst the crowd! Doesn't she look gorgeous in our Bell Sleeve Maxi?
