STEPHIEANN - luxurious silk loungewear and eye masks
Founded in 2014, StephieAnn creates luxurious silk loungewear inspired by poetry by Textile designer, Stephie Woolven. Made in the Welsh Valleys using couture techniques in the softest silk, StephieAnn tells a poetic story of romance through creative hand drawings & photography. Stephie transforms her artwork in photoshop which is digitally printed onto silk.
Stephie studied at Chelsea College of Art & Design, joining The Princes Trust upon graduating & throwing herself into the world of business. Growing up close to the South Downs, Stephie’s signature floral prints take inspiration from the British countryside.
The collections feature briefs, eye masks, slips and camisoles which transcend from day to nightwear. StephieAnn ladies love wearing the best selling camisoles & slips over jeans just as much as wearing them to bed.
PERSONALISED SILK EYE MASKS
The 4 of us just love supporting British brands, especially when they are run by women ;) and with International womens day just passed, we thought today is a good day to write about an inspiring women like StephieAnn. Stephie runs a beautiful label by the same name, making silk nightwear and accessories. Her designs are inspired by the beautiful British Countryside as well as poets, which we think is really original. She is super creative and hand draws all her designs, which are later printed on the finest silk.
Stephie sent us some eye masks to try out and when we received them we found them beautifully wrapped in purple paper with a poem and hand written note. How lovely is that? She clearly puts a lot of thoughts into the brand and product presentation. A nice surprise was getting personalised eye masks in the form of a hand stitched initial on the front.
THE MASKS IN ACTION
To be honest I (Annabell) have never owned an eye mask except for the crappy ones they give you on long haul flights. However, after trying out this one I'm certainly taking it on holiday every time. It's so special as its made out of silk and not only feels amazing it also smells lovely too because it's infused with lavender, which helps you to relax and sleep better. We think it's a great idea to invent a mask which smells of beautiful flowers! We all love them and can`t wait to use it for long distance flights or just on an evening before a busy day of shootings.
