How the idea 'dresses for boys' was born
The idea for Little Prince Charming was born when my 4 year old son started asking for dresses. As a mother who believes in the value of self-expression I wanted to grant his whish.
So I looked online for a dress designed for boys. The only thing I found were other parents looking for the same thing without result.
'You must be joking' I though to myself. There is not one dress for boys?? Seriously? Well, let's make one or two!
That's how it started. Because I want all kids to be able to wear what they like. My daughter loves
dresses and skirts and she doesn't mind sharing her wardrobe with her older brother.
Wasn't there a time where girls weren't allowed to wear pants? There must have been a parent who thought: well, I want to change that and design a pants for girls to wear.
And here I am, decades later, thinking the same thing. But this time for my son and all the other sons around the world. Who don't want to fit in the boxes we have.
So I hope you share my vision! Together we can make this a great place for our kids!
Thank you for reading!
Till around the age of 6 boys and girls like to wear what they think looks nice. Not what is part of their identity according to society.
My mission: to make this world a better place by creating a brand for dresses for boys, so that all kids can wear what they want and aren't told 'it's not for you cause you are born a certain way'. And by doing so I hope to make this world more tolerant, accepting and fun for our children to live in.
You know how they love to spin, move, walk in cheerful and shiny colors. Let’s make this world a better place for our children. Then our kids will grow up in a better world that is more accepting, open-minded, and inclusive.
About the Billie dress: The dress has arrived and I gave it to George yesterday! He absolutely loves it, it brought such a smile to his face and made him twirl and dance. Thank you 💙
To be honest with you, I find it even more beautiful, that women fight so that their clothes are available to everyone. You do it for your son but you also think of others, and frankly it is very rare!
I’ve been meaning to message and say, I love the concept for your page.
When my daughter was born I was so conscious of giving her options outside of pink outfits with stereotypical messaging. I wanted her to grow up knowing that clothes can be practical or an abstract way of showing creativity. But that whatever she wore it would be her choice.
When my son came along, the first time he reached for a tutu, I recall pausing, until I realised the very same messaging I was trying to teach Eva needed to apply to Brian as well. That by letting him chose what he enjoyed also solidified the message to Isla that colours and clothes have no gender. They’re about the same size in clothing, so I’ve stopped separating the clothes and they have one area for T-shirts, one for pants, jumpers etc and then hanging space for their dresses. It’s worked well in giving options.
Anyway, that was a very lengthy way of saying, I love your page and look forward to seeing what comes next.
Hi. I do love that your're page (and products) have seemed to take off. I so admire you for making the issue of boys wearing "girl's" clothes a thing. I, as a boy, always wanted to dress in pretty clothes as girls did (i.e. dresses, skirts, blouses, tights, etc.). I love that you have allowed your kid/s to experience wearing pretty clothes, and having long hair. I was denied that as a boy, and always wanted to just be more feminine......if that makes sense. Thank you for being a great mom, and for recognizing that dresses, and other traditionally feminine clothes are appropriate for boys as well as girls. I just love your designs, and wish I could have worn such pretty things when I was younger. My Best, Pete.
