about the collaboration

We have teamed up with our friend and dress designer/model Christy Dawn Petersen to design matching dresses for the Holiday Season. After Christy and Kelly met at Christy Dawn’s very first trunk show, it only seemed organic to collaborate as both of the companies use dead stock fabric and produce pieces in Los Angeles. The matching dresses will be the signature dress from Christy Dawn “The Dawn Dress” and Little Minis "Little Dawn."

“Being able to collaborate with Christy Dawn has really been a dream for us. Not only is the company thoughtful in their community, they make such effortless, beautiful pieces. So why not try and emulate by making a sweet Little Dawn!” says Kelly Zajfen, Co-Founder of Little-Minis.

Every CHRISTY DAWN piece is made by local artisans in Downtown Los Angeles, sewn with longevity in mind. The company uses deadstock fabric to minimize the environmental footprint, and instead of creating thousands of garments at a time, they sew a limited number of pieces.

“Collaborating with Little-Minis has been especially fun because we're all moms who happen to be passionate about the same things. Our babies, our businesses, and doing all of it with beauty in mind. There really aren't many chic mother/daughter outfits on the market. Our Dawn dress is effortlessly beautiful so it was an obvious choice for the collaboration. Now I feel like I need to have another child/daughter to dress her in our Little Dawn!” says Dawn Petersen
