1970
David Charles founded

Founded in 1970 by husband and wife team David and Susan Graff, David Charles has grown to become the most coveted and admired name in British party wear and dresses for special occasions. Entrepreneur David and his young wife Susan, who trained in fashion design at the prestigious Lucy Clayton School, were soon recognised as visionaries in the field of children’s clothing. They were the first to translate women’s high fashion trends into irresistible designs for girls aged 2-16, styles that were equally loved by children and their parents.

Since that time David Charles has forged a formidable international reputation, being one of the most important British brands to top stores around the world, from Harrods and Selfridges in London to Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales in New York, via Tsum in Moscow and Harvey Nichols in Riyadh.  They are also stocked in high-end, luxury boutiques in Paris, Rome, Vienna and most major cities in the world.

These are the timeless settings in which David Charles creations are regularly seen.
