About us

Macfarlane London creates show-stopping and timeless special occasion children’s clothes.


Nicki has become the go-to designer for discerning brides and mothers looking for dresses that have that extra wow factor for weddings, First Holy Communion, Confirmation, Eid, Bat Mitzvah, parties, recitals or red-carpet moments.

In 2011 Nicki had the enormous honour of designing the bridesmaids dresses for the wedding of TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. She has also had many commissions from clients around the world including celebrities and overseas Royal families.

Her eye for detail and sparkling creativity brings a dress to life. She is known for exquisitely made dresses, either prettily understated or something to make a big statement. Delivering a hands-on personal approach and brilliant customer service sets Macfarlane London apart.

Nicki says “I have been designing for children for my whole adult life and am as passionate about it now as I was when I started. Nothing makes me happier than working with a bride or a child’s mother to achieve the dress of their dreams. It is very important to me to work closely with my clients to understand their personal style and the event setting before beginning the design process. Every commission is different, and every single one is exciting. There is so much joyfulness in dressing children for a special event”.

We remain committed to the best of British design and manufacture. Many clients still crave elements of the uber-traditional and formal, but also want a shimmy of glamour, or a cleaner, more modern look to accompany events abroad. We work with many unusual and fabulous fabrics, some floaty and ethereal and others beautifully embroidered and embellished, as well as simpler ones for our classic take on the immaculately dressed child.

Come and see us and let us make something really special for you.
