David Charles


Once upon a time, a young married couple had a dream to become the globally recognised and leading brand in British childrens party dresses and girls special occasion dresses. In 1970, the dream came true for husband and wife entrepreneurs David and Susan Graff when they founded David Charles. Susan had studied fashion design at the prestigious Lucy Clayton School, gaining amazing experience and insights into the world of fashion design and being instantly recognised as a visionary in children’s designer clothing. They began an exciting journey of creating stunning luxury children’s dresses that has now spanned over more than forty years, and they would come to be selected by royal families and child stars internationally. Today, David Charles has grown to become the most respected British name in children’s luxury dresses and girl’s party dresses. They were the first to translate women’s high fashion trends into irresistible designs for children’s party dresses for the ages of 2 – 16 years, with oodles of styles that were and are equally loved by children and their parents alike. David Charles is now the leading British brand for childrens designer dresses and has managed to forge a formidable reputation internationally. The children’s party dresses can now be found in the world’s luxury boutiques and stores such as Harrods in London as well as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus in the USA. This iconic British childrenswear designer has dressed some of the most renowned figures, including Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice as well as the daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco. David Charles dresses have also been worn by numerous child stars such as Dakota Blue Richard at the premier of The Golden Compass in Hong Kong and Lourdes, the daughter of Madonna, and Emma Tremblay at the Big Apple’s premier of The Giver. The star of Nanny McPhee, Lil Woods, also selected a range of dresses from David Charles for various international premiers. After more than four decades of success, the David Charles brand continues its endless dream of creating the most sophisticated and cutting edge design in luxury children’s dresses with its stylish clothing range now expanding into the Middle East, China and Russia. David Charles is confident that the luxurious products will continue to captivate the parents of tomorrow and look forward to welcoming you as one of its many customers very soon. Now all the little girls can feel like the princesses that they are, and live happily ever after in style.
