The Little Dapper Collection (TLDC) is a Chicago-based fashion company that creates stunning, handcrafted bow tie collections designed and produced locally for infants and toddler boys. With a line of bow ties that are fit for fashionistas, the culturally diverse TLDC collection is primed to revolutionize the way parents dress their infant and toddler boys. The Little Dapper Collection is aiming to turn little boys into dapper young gentlemen with its new custom line of bow ties designed and produced locally in Chicago and available worldwide online.
The idea for TLDC came in part when Founder, Genesis Emery became pregnant with her first child Noah, whom she affectionately refers to as “Baby Noah.” After experiencing some post-birth complications – Baby Noah spent Christmas of 2014 and his first two months of life in Lurie Children's Hospital’s NICU. Because of this, Genesis felt a growing desire to move forward with her fashion brand while also giving back to parents and families in need. With that mindset, she is dedicated to giving back a portion of TLDC's revenue every month to charities and non-profits, many of which focus on helping families facing health complications, and for children in need of support.
