(Little) Labels To Love

I have always shopped from independent brands for my daughter’s wardrobes, as has Sarah for her children, so a story on our favourite small childrenswear brands has been in the Little Spree line-up for some time. However with the present situation unfolding, now seems a more prescient time than ever to support those businesses that are dedicated to creating exquisite, unique pieces for children. While these brands are undoubtedly more expensive than high-street labels, the quality and attention to detail of their designs sets them apart – they are pieces to be treasured and handed down from sibling to sibling. You will also be supporting a small business help weather the current economic storm (all while shopping online from the comfort of home.) From bonnets, to bows to stylish swimwear, stunning occasion wear and everything in between, below is a list of labels that Sarah and I turn to when looking for something different, yet beautifully designed.
