About Us


The Petit Parisians story began in the Spring of 2012, after viewing the children's fashion shows in Paris, Irene Manacos, Founder and Creative Director, returned to Sydney and opened the Petit Parisians online store, carefully selecting and importing only the finest pieces from the best designers throughout Europe, including a small selection of reputable Australian brands securing Petit Parisians the position of one of the fastest growing luxury childrenswear stores in the country. 

The demand for high end childrenswear that was also affordable soon became apparent, so with a background in design, Irene started the Petit Parisians brand. 

Soon after, Petit Parisians became globally recognized and was crowned a winner at the Junior Design Awards based in London, followed by a feature in several magazines including British Vogue & Glamour UK.

Petit Parisians moved their base to Toronto, Canada shortly thereafter and showed their collections at Toronto Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week and received rave reviews. 

Founded on a belief that true luxury is dependent on genuine materials and sincere craftsmanship, Petit Parisians is a symbol of elegance with an old world charm. 

With a strong interest in fair trade and a keen focus on local production, Petit Parisians is an ethically considerate luxury brand. 

All Petit Parisians collections are now produced in Canada. 

Enter the magical world of Petit Parisians, a journey encompassing simplicity, tradition, elegance and most importantly, childhood innocence.
