LITTLE ENGLISH® is a woman owned & operated design house with tradition at its heart.

inspired by the exceptional quality of hand-sewn clothing, and her belief that children should be well-dressed as children, Shannon Latham founded little english in 2004. As head of design, Shannon works side-by-side with her daughter, Dunn Latham, to create seasonal collections.

what started as a beautiful layette line defined by traditional hand-smocking has flourished into a full apparel line with accompanying accessories, outerwear, and gifts. today, little english is an upscale lifestyle brand that can be purchased through our website as well as in fine boutiques across the US, and major luxury retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Maisonette, and more.

we believe in producing forever quality garments that are meant to be worn by more than one child. through our use of durable fabrics that are ready to wash and wear over and over again, we have earned a ‘tried and true' status by families across the world.
