Tutu du Monde is a line of tutus that call to mind a kinder world, a gentle place where little children can imagine being a dainty ballerina, a helpful fairy and a benevolent princess.
When aked my daughter for a tutu, I embarked on the quest to find one that was not mass- produced, hot pink and polyester. I couldn’t and TUTU DU MONDE was born, featuring a line of tutus that were not only timeless and exquisitely made but were also ecologically sustainable and created with love.
What makes the brand unique ? Tutu du Monde tutus have a hand-made, hand-dyed, one-off, old-world feel without the frail nature of a vintage garment. Colours are dusty pastels, with details of sequins, beads and feathers, applied by hand to cotton and tulle. They are made to last and, in fact, get better with wear. Slight fading and fraying edges adds to their charm over time.
A quote from a client or journalist? As loyal Planet Awesome Kid readers know, we are HUGE fans of Tutu Du Monde. We are OBSESSED with their new collection aptly named High Tea with Madame Woo. My daughter has a Tutu Du Monde collection, and there is literally no other dresses that even come close to the haute couture craftsmanship of these very special creations. Every special girl deserves a very special Tutu Du Monde creation of her own.
How many pieces per collection : About 40
Main materials used : Cotton and tulle
