About Who's Little?
I launched Who’s Little? to help parents and their daughters freeze time—to capture that blink of an eye moment before the calendar hurries forward to the teen years and beyond. Therefore, the Who’s Little? aesthetic is unapologetically sweet.
Each piece in the collection is inspired by cherished memories of the princess-y, pirouette-worthy dresses my mom used to buy for me. Special events like birthdays, picture days, holidays and weddings often meant a trip to a fancy store and the chance to try on enough new outfits to make my head spin!
It’s important to me that every little girl have at least a few of these magical memories to take with her along life’s journey. That's why I’ve established the One Girl, One Dress Project. Through One Girl, One Dress, I work with non-profit organizations to provide dresses to underprivileged, chronically sick or terminally ill girls who need the lift only a special dress can provide.
I’ve seen the power of a new dress firsthand while working with the CoachArt charity in Los Angeles. Together, we hosted a fashion show in which the girls modeled my collection on the runway. This star turn—complete with the full hair and makeup treatment—allows them to feel like pretty little celebrities and helps give them a momentary reprieve from the harsh realities of their day-to-day lives. It’s a joyous time made even more so when the girls realize they get to keep the dresses they’ve modeled.
While the clothes themselves are surely appreciated, what I really hope these girls receive is a boost to their self-esteem and a reason to hope and dream.
