10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

Du Monde and the inspiration behind the It’s My Birthday Collection.

How do you stay inspired and focused?

I try and have balance in my life which is a lot easier said than done especially when you
juggle a fast-growing business and family life. It’s easy to lose sight of the big picture
sometimes when a lot is happening. As for inspiration, I get most inspired when I’m
travelling, removed from the everyday office life. It seems as soon as I get on a plane, I
remove myself from the day to day routine and ideas come flooding in.

How did Tutu Du Monde come to life?

Tutu du Monde began with my quest for a ‘ballerina dress’ for my own little daughter – a then four-year-old fussy dresser! Faced with market offerings of uninspired and uninspiring mass-produced, pink polyester, I instinctively drew on my own design aesthetic and experience and decided to create my own tutus. Thus, the brand was born and formally
launched in 2009. What I initially considered a ‘side-project’ soon took over my life.

How would you describe the overall ethos of Tutu Du Monde?

Original, genuine and innovative. We were the first and original tutu brand. Our garments are created by the best artisans in the world. They may look delicate, but they’re made to be worn and can be passed on to siblings and friends.

What are the key details from the collection?

It’s a celebratory showcase of delicate detailing and beautiful silhouettes. From floaty
designs featuring meticulously crafted pearl bodices to sparkling motifs of stars, swans and
unicorns, which is the original essence of our global brand.

What is the design process and how are the garments made?

Our design team works on a concept and we then work in collaboration with our beaders in India, who have the best artisans in the world to bring our sketches to life. The beading on every dress is made by hand, one at a time which can take a whole day to come together. There is nothing fast and mass in the making of our garments.

What makes Tutu Du Monde different from other brands?

Tutu Du Monde garments are of the highest quality, hand-crafted and hand-dyed with a focus on timeless designs. We love dusty pastels, sparkling sequins, crystal beads and wisps of feathers, which are applied to the softest natural cotton, finest tulle and silk organza. Our pieces are divinely comfortable and are made to pass on through the generations.
