Our Story

It all began with Nina, whose passion for creating beautiful garments started at an early age. With the arrival of her three daughters, she found herself sewing for both everyday wear and special family events like Christenings, Weddings, and First Holy Communions. Her family was the source of her inspiration. Admiration from family and friends spread, leading to the birth of "Little Dream" in the early 1990s from her home studio. Nina always dreamed of opening a children’s boutique, and in 2003, she and her daughter Maria made that dream a reality by opening 'Little Dream' Children’s Boutique in Leichhardt, NSW, Australia. Here, they continue to provide unique services for those seeking superior children’s special occasion garments and heirloom-quality accessories. Nina's qualifications in hand embroidery and honeycomb smocking, earned both overseas and in Australia, reflect her extensive experience and expertise. She has participated in numerous exhibitions and has been commissioned to create garments for the Miss Italia and Miss Universe pageants.

Maria shares Nina's passion and expertise, having completed her diploma in fashion right after high school. She, too, has a love for creating garments, inspired by the guidance of her mother. In the last few years, Mariana joined the family business full-time after a successful career in high-end jewellery. She is the creative force behind our in house label ‘Special Day Candles’ and Accessories.
