About Us

We've been dressing children beautifully since 1952

Childrensalon is an award-winning, forward-thinking British childrenswear destination with family at its heart.

Seven decades after Sybil Harriman first opened the doors to her boutique The Children's Salon, we now bring our edit of more than 240 of the world's finest designers, including Gucci, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga and Moncler, to customers in over 170 countries.

Everything we do is inspired by our core values of family, creativity, innovation and heritage, still with a commitment to exceptional personal service and dressing children beautifully.
