When I think of Tutu Du Monde the word “whimsical” immediately comes to mind. Whimsical by definition means playfully quaint or fanciful, especially in an appealing and amusing way. A Tutu Du Monde dress is the perfect ingredient for a day of make-believe.
Tutu Du Monde dresses are perfect for little girls and big girls ready to escape to another world full of fun and wonder with endless dreams and fantasies. As she steps into her dress, your special girl will be immediately transformed into an enchanted princess or a magical ferry ready to set out on the adventure of a lifetime.
Some interesting facts about Tutu Du Monde:
Tutu Du Monde is based in Australia. That’s right, mate, Australia.
- It is the creation of Andrea Rembeck, a revered German designer who impulsively moved to Australia in her 20s.
- After years of designing, Andrea shut down her women’s line in 2005 to focus on raising her daughter.
- Rembeck’s daughter wanted princess dresses. All she could find were cheap costume dresses made with synthetic materials, so she created and produced a handful of princess dresses for her daughter. They were a hit and her friends encouraged her to start a business.
- Tutu Du Monde was born.
At LaBella Flora, we love mom success stories. What a blessing to build a thriving business from life experiences as a mom! Like all moms, Andrea has to balance work and family; she has found a way to successfully build her brand and make time for her family. For more insight on Andrea’s thoughts on this balancing act, check out Intelligent Brans Extention’s blog.
What makes Tutu Du Monde special?
- Unique design
Inspired by French ballet costumes, Tutu Du Monde Dresses are timeless and intentionally designed to age gracefully with wear adding to their vintage charm. It’s a dress meant to be passed down from generation to generation. Each dress is uniquely designed and hand crafted with intricate details, featuring silk ties, beading, sequins, and feathers – straight from a little girl’s dreams. The base of each dress is quality, comfortable cotton and high-end tulle.
Because of the ballet influence on Tutu Du Monde design, we thought, “what would be better than letting some ballerinas take a dress for a twirl?” My youngest daughter dances with local studio, Turning Pointe Dance Academy, and is in a trio this dance season – our blossoming ballerinas. Here are some serious and fun highlights from our ballerinas’ day of Tutu Du Monde!
Let’s just say, the dresses were a hit! So much so that the Boudoir Tutu Dress is going to be their costume for their lyrical trio this season for four reasons.
- The girls loved the fact the dresses are “so pretty” and they “love them.”
- The moms thought the details of the dresses are amazing.
- Probably the most important reason, each dancer thought the dress was comfortable and “not scratchy” like typical dance costumes.
- And finally, the Tutu Du Monde dress can be worn again once dance season is over! A win for us dance moms and our little dancers.
I can’ t wait to see these three shine at their competitions and recital. Our mini dancers are already plotting a fun night out after dance season to wear their dresses together!

Finish her look with shoes from Joyfolie loaded with gems and glitter. If she is ready to dance the night away flats are a great option. If your daughter is like mine she is begging for heals, which she may not be able to master walking in, yet let alone dancing. Joyfolie has the option of a short heel, just sassy enough to keep your diva happy, but low enough for dancing (and walking). And don’t forget a dazzling hair piece or headband from DollBaby to finish the look.

What if doesn’t Fit?
While we were making our Blossoming Ballerinas in Tutu Du Monde Video, I had several Tutu Du Monde dresses with me. A few dance moms approached me about ordering from LaBellaFlora.com. The most common concern was ordering clothing they haven’t had the opportunity to see in person. NOT A PROBLEM. At LaBella Flora, you receive a full refund within 14 days of receipt on full and sale priced items. There are no restocking fees. If it doesn’t fit or you just don’t like it…send it back.
To help make the ordering process easy, we created a chart to provide helpful information on some of our top brands, including how each brands fit. Tutu Du Monde runs true-to-size, if your special girl is tall for her age you may want to consider sizing up for length. A great feature of Tutu Du Monde is that the bodices are made of cotton and have some stretch to them, fitting a variety of body types.
