Our Social Commitment
At Antoinette Paris, we feel we are so lucky to be involved in the business of children’s fashion but we have to question ourselves: What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?
So while we are continuously growing, we also want to support social causes in which we believe.
Our main mission is to keep traditions alive by creating sustainable heirlooms that can be passed from generations to generations.
Our world is changing constantly and so quickly and Antoinette Paris mission is to offer roots and stability to families by allowing them to dress up their children with limited editions of traditional handmade smocked dresses. For us, being more sustainable and help our Earth to be greener first require to offer our children garments that make them feel part of a constant History and connected to our beautiful French Heritage and Culture - and do it in a full respect of the innocence of childhood!
Our Pledge to the Earth
Antoinette’s goal is to offer less but better!
It means we are 100% dedicate to design elegant and comfortable pieces. We pay attention to every tiny detail and our pieces are handmade to last. We do not produce to produce so we are trying to save fabrics season after season and to re-use fabrics or buttons we have in stock. We are also producing 80% of our collection on pre-order so we do not have large volume of unsold stock. Our missions to slow fashion are to offer limited editions twice a year. We handmade each of our dress with respect for people, in dignity of work and in harmony with the land. All our fabrics are carefully selected for their softness and resilience, they all are coming from Europe and all our cottons fabrics are GOTS and/or Oeko-Tex certified.
Our Donations & Partnership with Aina
At Antoinette Paris it is important to make our customers happy by offering them beautiful dresses, but as a children brand it was a priority to help less fortunate people.
We aim to give back whenever we can. We haven chosen to help children in Madagascar, a place we have visited in family and where some children have limited access to Education and sometimes even no family they can live with. So, we decided to get involved with Aina.
Since 2005, Aina is a supportive village located in Madagascar. Aina’s goal is to educate and gradually lead to autonomy disadvantaged children and their young mothers. So they offer a place to live, school access and day care for babies.
At this time, Antoinette Paris is happy to donate 4 % of its annual profit to sponsor the daily needs of a mother and her baby girl. Every year, Antoinette Paris is delighted to donate Aina some dresses from our past seasons so Aina’s residents can dress up! As each child deserves it. Isn't it?
In the future, as we will continue to grow, we would love to be able to help more and more young Mothers and their infants from Aina’s orphanage. We will keep you posted on our future donations!
