I am Stephie, founder of StephieAnn. I’m a textile designer and I create handcrafted fashion, gifts and accessories.
Based in the StephieAnn shop and studio in Hove, you’ll find me designing fabric prints, products and personalising gifts with hand embroidering. When I was a teenager I remember saying to my muma, ‘I’m going to have a fashion brand called StephieAnn’, and today I pinch myself because I can’t believe I made it happen!
I’ve always had a one track mind, (studying Art, Textiles, Photography and Dance for A-Levels), and when I graduated with a Textiles degree from Chelsea College of Art and Design, founding StephieAnn was top of my list. With the support of The Princes Trust, I’ve grown StephieAnn to a place where I work full time for myself and have hand embroidered over 10,000 personalised gifts since 2016.
Today StephieAnn has two unique ranges….
Looking through my poetry book, I design creative prints telling poetic stories through artwork. I complete a series of paintings and photographs before transforming my artwork in photoshop, digitally printed onto silk.

Embroidered Personalised Gifts
The StephieAnn hand embroidered collection includes handcrafted gifts, personalised with embroidery from my Sussex studio. Each stitch is completed by hand embroidery using a combination of chain, running and back stitched. Products are personalised with either monogrammed initials or exclusive secret messages! Messages are added in the collar on our organic cotton pyjamas, on the soles of socks or in the cuffs of hats. StephieAnn’s best selling I am Awesome cashmere bed socks are a fun gift for girls and women.
Our gift wrap turns your gift into a beautiful showstopper! Unique to StephieAnn, most products have the option to gift wrap under the drop-down box, ‘How to wrap your order?’. This option is perfect for those on the go and sending straight to the recipient. Your order will be placed in a gift box being being wrapped in recycled craft paper and tied with twine. I then decorate your order with pressed flowers and leaves collected from my garden. Flowers change with the seasons.
