Get Personal Here
Is there anything better than *borrowing* your partner’s oversized pyjamas after a long week? Co-founder of pyjama brand Desmond & Dempsey, Molly Goddard, doesn’t think so. Together with her other half and business partner Joel Desmond, they create beautiful and luxurious hand-painted men’s and women’s pyjamas to cater for Sunday adventures or later afternoons in bed. Today, co-Founder Molly Goddard will be at Brown Thomas Grafton Street to meet customers and embroider their initials on to the sleeve or breast pocket of their Desmond & Dempsey pyjamas. The service takes approx five minutes and is a really unique and personal gift for someone special this Christmas. Find Desmond & Dempsey in The Lingerie Room, Level 3, Brown Thomas Dublin, from 10 am to 5 pm.
