With both online and bricks and mortar boutiques, Pavement is the ideal place to visit for girls and boys aged 8-16.

This online store came about with the intention of not only promoting new and established Australian designers, but European labels that we may not have had the best access to in the past. Handmade products and high-quality designs are the cornerstone of this boutique.
Feisty Little Mouse
Starting out as a mum’s passion project, Feisty Little Mouse has grown into a must-visit boutique for both international and Australian brands with a high commitment to quality. Esme, Kenzo, Munster and Stella McCartney Kids are just a handful of the labels you can browse both in store and online that will have you cooing and cawing as an involuntary reflex.
736 New South Head Road, Rose Bay
This Australian children’s fashion, homewares and lifestyle label for girls aged 0-12 whose ethos ‘let them be little’ is translated into every design, allowing kids to experience the joy and innocence of childhood. Bold prints and carefully crafted ruffles are all but impossible to resist – and with a strong focus on ethical manufacturing you can feel good about every purchase too.
20-28 Maddox Street, Alexandria
Not a Sydney-based store but we couldn’t resist… John Galliano, Chloe, Fendi, Lanvin, Moncler, Gucci, Marni – these labels are synonymous with luxury, and thanks to the work of Melijoe’s founder Nathalie Genty, our little ones can muck around in the finest of threads shipped straight to your door. If a Bonpoint bomber jacket or ballet shoe are all your baby desires, visit this Paris based website for the most current collections for children on the market.
Toys, books, gifts, bedroom homewares, and of course clothing. Infancy’s range for both babies and kids is a one stop shop for kids’ retail. A Hubble + Duke pinafore or a set of Bobo Choses shorts are irresistible – don’t even get us started on the Indus Design muslin baby wraps.
