The heroine of our adventures is named Charlotte after our children's wear brand Charlotte sy Dimby. She is our new ambassador.

She is a Sasha collector doll, a repainted "Trendon School girl" type from the 1980's. She is blonde with blue eyes and has the kindest heart.

She arrived in our Paris boutique in a rather dishevelled state...

Before telling you all about her adventures with Burlington Bear and showing you her exquisite wardrobe, we would like to introduce her through a Chinese portrait. A Chinese Portrait (portrait chinois in French) is a description of oneself through a comparison with various animals, objects, places, people, characters, foods, or anything really!

If you were ... a city ?

A city Paris

Paris! Add three letters to Paris and you have paradise, said Jules Renard! Deep within I know that my heart belongs to Paris.

If you were …  a work of art ? 

Embroidery Charlotte and Burlington children's book

An embroidery! Wouldn’t it be fascinating to be born from the creativity of a passionate artist, to be filled with so many different colours and subtle shades.

If you were … a plant ?

Rose illustration  Charlotte and Burlington children's book

Definitely a flower, they are Mother’s Nature’s most pretty gift! I would be a rose that bloomed through the long summer to fill homes and gardens with the fragrance of love.

If you were … a piece of clothing ? 

Smocked dress Charlotte and Burlington children's book

Without a single doubt, a Charlotte sy Dimby smocked dress! I love the way they twirl and I feel like a princess wearing them!

If you were … a quality ? 

Generosity, the world is full of wonders and beauty! I believe it is there for us to share and spread. I may have to add curiosity too. I am always searching for magic which is often found in the most unexpected places...

If you were … a quote ?

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret : It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye!” The Little Prince from Saint Exupéry. 

Now that introductions have been made, it’s almost time for the adventure to begin!
