It's birthday mania at our place right now, with a pink and purple party mood board (I kid you not), party goodies arriving in the post, and cupcakes in the oven. It's really going to be just a little party, but it's the event of the year for the Bondville soon-to-be 3 year old and I like to encourage her creativity and excitement.
And a birthday girl has to have a party dress, right? when I spotted the glorious purple tutu (top) at Mathilda's Markets last month, I just had to squirrel it away. Shhhh.... don't tell!
Andrea Rembeck from Tutu Du Monde creates magical dresses and tutu's for dress-up and everyday. The dresses are works of art - hand dyed in pastel colours and detailed with sequins, beads, feathers and lots of lovely tulle. It's truly hard to pick a favourite (I dare you).
Andrea Rembeck is an established fashion designer and has designed for labels such as Collette Dinnigan and Fleur Wood and her own labels Andrea Rembeck and diffusion line She’s Beck. When her daughter asked for a tutu, Andrea created her own vintage-feel versions with a "lighter footprint" that are practical for play but will still transport your lovelies to enchanted forests. And luckily they are "made to last, and in fact, get better with wear. Slight fading and fraying edges adds to their charm over time". With the amount of wear and tear at our house, this is good news.
So here's to fairies and princesses and ballerinas and pink and purple and frothy dancing dresses and 3 year old parties. Such a special time.
You can find Tutu Du Monde in the online store as well as at stockists in Australia and the US.
