Hope & May is a unique lifestyle brand that offers an eclectic fusion of raw and bohemian-inspired fashion and interiors sourced and inspired by culture-rich,
international locations and their beautiful east coast home of Byron Bay Australia.
Creator and owner Melinda Maguire's vision for the Hope & May lifestyle range began through Melinda's love for designing and travelling.
After spending her time residing in Asia and travelling the world she personally selected and designed the products that would form the bohemian lifestyle range.
The Hope & May concept store was opened in Byron Bay in 2009.
The label's name is derived from the middle names of Melinda's daughters, Kobi and Tahlia, who are strongly involved in the business, from sourcing, designing, to the creativity of the label.
Kobi and Tahlia spent their childhood travelling with their mum, Melinda, on international buying trips, visiting villages, sourcing designs and learning of fair trade.
The girls were exposed to the rich international cultures of the world, which inspires and reflects their mutual love for beautiful, unique fashion and design.
Hope & May's homewares and fashion range is a mix of influence from their world travels to the beautiful surroundings of their hometown of Byron Bay.
This influence has created the Hope and May signature look that is both eclectic, bohemian and contemporary.
