Hope Macaulay is a contemporary luxury and bespoke fashion brand by an emerging fashion and textiles designer based in Northern Ireland. Hope's handmade-to-order, energetic and surreal garments have been featured in Vogue’s '6 New Names In Summer Knitwear To Obsess Over' and 'Best Street Style at London Fashion Week', Elle, Vanity Fair and the New York Times. Hope's garments have also been seen on Halsey and Gigi Hadid.
Hope creates large expressive collaged paintings and transforms them into prints, combined with carefully constructed detailed beadings and playful garment designs.
Just from using her hands, Hope develops unique and exuberant chunky knitwear pieces. Our favourite colourful colossal knits are handmade from 100% jumbo merino wool, a high quality, natural, biodegradable and sustainable material.
Hope Macaulay garments are produced all over Northern Ireland, by a small team of knitters and seamstresses – and also by Hope herself! We strongly believe in high quality, made-to-order, handmade garments, shopping small, and supporting local women in our community.
Hope's creations are not a representation of reality but a world in which you may find in your dreams, inspired by her fascination with the mind, distortion, reality and surrealism. Hope Macaulay garments are wearable pieces of art, that are bold and vivid experiences, each telling a dream-like story.
