Pixie Lily and I Adore Little Feet | Style Contributor @AllieRoyall
The first of these tiny “couture” creations came to be following the birth of Pixie Lily designer Leda Jackson’s daughter Suzanne. Upon her arrival, this lucky baby girl was dressed in a gown that had been made for her great-grandfather, Count Hughes Jules de la Vergne. In fact nearly all of Suzanne’s layette was steeped in the artistry of her French and Southern ancestors from Louisiana to South Carolina.
Having grown accustomed to such finery, with her newborn, Leda wanted to fill out baby Suzanne’s wardrobe with some new gowns and basics to reflect her own simple, chic aesthetic. Unable to put her hands on exactly what she had in mind, this sewing class flunkie took needle and thread to airy cotton batiste and fashioned a day gown. And so, the very first Pixie Lily was born.
In 2000, Leda officially opened the doors of Pixie Lily proper and began creating layettes - from bonnets to blankets – for today’s babies that mirror the quality and simplicity of her own family heirlooms. With “no fuss” elegance and attention to detail, Pixie Lily has become a featured product line in over 500 national and international specialty boutiques and the must have layette for celebrity mothers like Gwyneth Paltrow, Mariska Hargitay, Brooke Shields and Rachel Weisz.
About I Adore Little Feet:
Their inspiration for their business came from personal experience as parents to boy and girl twins when they started to find their feet and needed shoes. They wanted footwear that would give the twins the support and comfort that they needed but with stylish designs using only leather materials.
In their search to find shoes that would tick all criteria, they found that they were drawn to the shoes available in Spain and Italy. They learned about these brands from visits to Europe and wished for their lovely shoes to be more readily available in the UK. So after some consideration and many compliments on the shoes from these brands that the twins were wearing, they set up the on-line business from London in early 2014 and decided to launch with the gorgeous spring summer collection of 2014. They have chosen brands and shoes that THEY LOVE and that they think will offer discerning and stylish parents the selection of hand-made, leather footwear that they would like to buy for their children.
