Beautiful. They make little girls look like little girls should look - Sadie Frost

Their Nibs was conceived by Fiona Bell, in London’s fashionable Notting Hill in the summer of 2003. Fiona was born and raised in the Yorkshire countryside, describing her childhood as “The Good Life” meets “The Darling Buds of May.

The inspiration for the brand was Fiona’s son Finn, affectionately known as His Nibs. When Finn began nursery, Fiona saw a gap in the market for an eclectic clothing collection, for vintage inspired threads! Their Nibs’ first shop opened in 2003 and really caught the mood of the moment, with a second shop following in 2009 in London’s Kensal Rise. . Vintage was the word on everyone’s lips and it quickly established itself as the go to store for parents who wanted to dress their children with originality and flair.

Their Nibs continues to be designed by Fiona Bell, supported by teenage son Finn, her cameraman husband Charlie and their terrier Rocket.

This year, 2016 heralds the relaunch of Their Nibs with a new website,
fresh branding and an updated collection  presenting a stylish, contemporary take on classic vintage style. Their Nibs sell directly to our dedicated customers online whilst supplying key UK department stores and independent boutiques.
