Welcome to Ivy & Normanton
Ivy & Normanton is the first legal outfitter specialising in court wear for women in the legal profession. Our designs have been created with advocates' day-to-day experience in mind to provide products that emphasize comfort, quality and fit. We are invested in the growth of the legal profession and encourage all women who attend court to do so with confidence. Whether you’re a barrister, solicitor, clerk, or judge, you can rely on our clothing range to provide you with court attire that will set you apart.
At Ivy & Normanton we believe you can look professional and still express your individuality. We have gathered together some of our favourite makers in our carefully curated marketplace emphasising sustainability and creativity so you can find your look.
Helen Chatterton was born in Bury, Lancashire in 1961. The seeds of a lifetime's obsession were sown when her Scottish mother taught her to knit and sew at the age of seven. Growing up in a textile-based town and household fostered a passion for all aspects of fabrics and yarns, that's why Helen's scarves are made with high quality wool, velvet and Liberty fabrics. We love Helen's creations and brought them to you to brighten up dark suits and winter days.
Ivy & Normanton's founder, Karlia Lykourgou, recently won Next 100 Year's "Under 35 Lawyer of the Year" Award at the Inspirational Women in Law Awards 2020. These awards seek to identify the trailblazers of the profession and celebrate those who have made a significant contribution. Karlia was nominated for her work establishing Ivy & Normanton and has also been identified as a "Legal Change-Maker" in their 2020 "Women Who Will" report.
The I&N Hijab
Our I&N hijab was created in collaboration with hijab wearing members of the legal profession to be perfectly designed for court. Made of 100% organic bamboo silk, it's moisture wicking and hypoallergenic to keep you cool in the summer and comfortable in winter, and is the perfect size and shape for tucking into a suit jacket or into a collarette, so you can express your identity as a person and a professional.
Ever wondered how Ivy & Normanton got started? Alice Stephenson did - so she interviewed Karlia Lykourgou to found out what made her set up the company and what makes it unique. You can find the full video here along with other features from Alice's series on "Women Who Break Things".

"Received my beautiful Ivy and Normanton collarettes. So wonderfully made and designed. FINALLY ladies at the Bar won't have to feel like they're wearing a grotty serviette tucked down their top all day." - Phoebe Bragg
"First day physically back in court today. I'd be nervous, but for the fact that it means I get to try out my new @IvyandNormanton FITTED shirt - as a result of which I'll be arriving two hours early and exuberantly parading the corridors." - Harriet Johnson
"My @IvyandNormanton collarettes just arrived! Marvellous. They actually fit properly, tucking down under a jacket. And poppers rather than hair-trapping velcro at the neck fastening." - Felicity McMahon
