Girls will be Girls – David Charles party dresses for Christmas!

With the party season coming up fast, little girls’ thoughts turn to party dresses.

From twirling skirts to ribbons and bows, at some point all little girls love to be dressed up for a party no matter how cool they may be on a normal day.



The wizard of the special occasion, David Charles’ AW13/14 collection of party dresses is just gorgeous with as many pretty frills and flounces as you like alongside some very special pared down pieces for those who prefer to be less girly. From super pretty dresses in pink satin with glitter and flowers, to lush navy velvet topped with enormous pink bows, to fashion focussed boiled wool in block Mondrian style, to black and white ruffled tartan, to full skirts in navy silk with sequins it’s none stop fun for the girl wearing David Charles. Featured across the collection are Peter Pan collars, neckline bows and flower sashes all in gorgeous colours and fabrics.

The David Charles label was founded in 1970 by husband and wife team David and Susan Graff, and has since then been translating high fashion trends into irresistibly perfect party dresses for girls aged 2 to 16. The wide age range of course means there is something for little girls wanting to feel like princesses for the day and for bigger girls longing for that perfect prom dress.

A favourite amongst buyers at top luxury stores from Harrods in London to Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales in New York, via Tsum in Moscow and Harvey Nichols in Riyadh, the brand also launched a stand alone boutique in Shanghai in January 2013 with another opening in St Petersberg in August. Plus just to show the popularity of David Charles, a third Chinese boutique opened in October this year.

And if you’re at all interested in legacy, you might like to know that David Charles has dressed Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, and the daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco. For the premiere of The Golden Compass, Dakota Blue Richards wore David Charles, and Madonna’s daughter Lourdes was also spotted in New York in one of the frocks.
