When it comes to dressing up small girls, it is always fun! Isn’t it just like a doll dress up game? However, designing these doll dresses for your princesses is not a child’s play. Meet Nishita Toprani of Little Pixie, her designs are inspired by things she loves- “a fresh bouquet of roses, a tray of colourful macaroons, or some vintage crockery!”
Tête-à-tête with Nishita:
1) Tell us about the dresses created by Little Pixie?
I was always curious about designing dresses for little girls, and decided to open a boutique. So in 2011, Little Pixie happened with an intention of creating stylish, unique, beautifully crafted and extremely comfortable clothing for little angels. Though I have been in women’s fashion for many years, Little Pixie started only when I made an experimental dress for a friend’s baby girl. I slowly grew very passionate about it, and turned it into a business. My only way forward!
2) What kind of detailing and designing goes in making such pretty pretty clothes for little girls?
Little Pixie clothes are ‘Pretty, Posh and Playful’! I draw design inspirations from everything I love most – a fresh bouquet of roses, a tray of colourful macaroons, or some vintage crockery! Almost everything inspires me to make beautiful, and one of a kind pieces for little girls. Many of my designs are also influenced by a wonderful mix of Victorian, Parisian and Oriental art.
While the focus is always on creating beautiful and exceptional designs, comfort and durability is top priority. That is why only the best quality of fabric is used (which is almost always cotton based). Finishing and detailing is also very important; every dress is as special as its little wearer. Little girls should feel like princesses in Little Pixie dresses.
Little Pixie makes a very small quantity of each design, every piece is constructed with absolute care, and offer exclusivity to the customers.
