Company Snapshot

Company Snapshot

Established in 1952 and online since 1999, Childrensalon is a fast-growing, award-winning, forward-thinking retailer, specializing in dressing children beautifully. 

A long established British heritage brand, today Childrensalon is the world’s largest online store for luxury childrenswear – offering over 250 of the world’s most desirable brands; including Gucci, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli, Karl Lagerfeld Kids to customers in 160 countries. 

Childrensalon is comprised of a team of 250 people working in a family-friendly culture from the head offices in Royal Tunbridge Wells. Over the past years, the growth rate has averaged at 60% driven by an entrepreneurial, innovative spirit that embraces change and puts emphasis on developing their people from within. 

Remaining privately-owned has allowed them to forge their own path whilst staying true to their founding values, and keeping everything in-house - from Buying to Marketing, Digital Design, Development, the Studio and Customer Service - creates a diverse, thriving environment, as well as a great place to learn and develop.

The company's impressive performance has achieved many awards for 2016 including a place in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100, the International Track 200, and 45th place in the Profit Track 100. These accolades follow a “Best Multichannel Retailer: £25m-£200m Turnover” 2016 Drapers Award as well as a recurring feature in the London Stock Exchange"1000 Companies to Inspire Britain". We are also extremely proud to be a Living Wage Employer and to have gained a Best Companies 2* Outstanding Accreditation.
