1. Huxbaby

The name has a utilitarian ring to it and that's exactly what you'll find here: monochrome, organic cotton, unisex gear that proves less is more.

2. Feather Drum

Everything a boho babe needs. Namely fringed vests and flares that'll only look better worn with dirty elbows, grass-stained knees, and flowers in their hair.

3. Phoenix and the Fox

You know your fave tee? The one with the cool print, that feels great and goes with everything? Phoenix and the Fox sell exactly the same thing but in sizes 000 to 4.


4. Tutu Du Monde

All the pretty tutus and glittering gold hairbands a girlie-girl heart could desire.

5. Little Edge Apparel

Family obsessed with Bonds hoodies and Nike Frees? You’ll love this Sydney-based label that specialises in street-ready ensembles for mums and bubs.

6. Harpas Nest

Every so often a brand comes along with a style that's exactly what everyone wants to wear. For kids in 2015, the Harem Romper from Brisbane-based Harpa's Nest is it.

7. Munster Kids

If Anthony Kiedis and Erin Wasson started a kid's label, this is what it'd look like. Think surf-inspired gear for boys, girls and infants from sizes 000 to 14.


8. Nacido

A tribute to abuelitas (grandmothers) everywhere, Nacido is your go-to for all things crocheted, tie-dyed and handmade with love.

9. Children of the Tribe

Adore Children of the Tribe's sun-soaked prints and free-wheeling vibe? Join the clan. With 60,000+ Instagram fans, the label is taking Byron Bay kid's style to the world.

10. Minti

What would you wear if you were small? If the answer is comfy trackies with killer prints, then you're in luck. Melbourne design crew, Minti, has all that and more.

11. Joey Jelly Bean

You know that neon, graphic baby gear you see all over the mall nowadays? Well, Johnna Glennen of Joey Jelly Bean pretty much invented that gear - way back in 2008. These days, the mum of four runs her babywear label from Warracknabeal in country Victoria, and it's still as cool and cutting edge as ever.


12. Chi Khi

Founded by the impeccably stylish Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Chi Khi boasts urban, unisex designs in a monochromatic palette that are made to be mixed and matched.

13. Sapling Child

Forget Iggy Azalea - since signing Jaime King as an ambassador, Sapling Child is the latest Aussie export to win hearts in the U.S.

14. Alfie Children's Apparel

Beach Boys prep meets Pharrell swag - plus the coolest range of snapbacks, beanies and five-panel caps you'll find this side of Venice Beach.

15. Milk and Masuki

Take a dash of art school hip (the two founders met there), add Scandinavian simplicity (the label is a cult fave overseas) and you get this adorable Southern Highlands-based brand guaranteed to amp up any babe's playpark style.


16. He and Her the Label

Tight jeans. Suit ties. Big heels. As grown-ups, we wear some pretty uncomfy stuff. Kids? Don't even think about it. So it's lucky, really, that He and Her The Label is exclusively about stretchy, slouchy essentials in the softest cotton around.

17. Bandit Kids

Forget Vegemite because there's a new Aussie icon in town in the form of Bandit tees. With their hand-printed illustrations and lived-in feel, they're real little beauties.

18. Krome Kids

Robots, dinosaurs, skateboards. Robots, dinosaurs, skate - yep, you get it: fashion for little dudes can be pretty predictable. Enter Krome Kids, a label designed and made in Melbourne proving hoodies and beanies don't have to be boring.

19. Luna and the Boy

Fancy cookie-cutter perfection? Keep on walking. Handmade in Brisbane, Luna and the Boy is kooky, sweet and everything your little one needs right now.


20. Urban Mum Shop

Limited edition, ingeniously practical and utterly chillaxed. What's not to love?

21. Misteri Kids

Unisex gear with a colourful twist, some of these pieces sell out quicker than you can say "I'll take two", so bookmark this site.

22. Anarkid

The name hints at heavy metal and mohawks, but in truth Anarkid is more genius all-over prints and a heartfelt emphasis on organic materials and Fair Trade makers.

23. Curious Wonderland

There's style... then there's Korean style. We're talking tricked up denim, madcap accessories and everything layered to create pure "jjang". After a stint in the land of K-pop, Aussie designer Andrea Harrison was inspired to bring the style home - and so the kids' label Curious Wonderland was born.

24. Atelier Child

For lovers of J.Crew comes Australian luxury knitwear brand Atelier Child. A little preppy, a little chic, it's destined to be a hit with small fry who appreciate the finer things.

25. Alphabet Soup

Funked-up, tricked-up, crazy-pants apparel for extreme sports stars in the making.
