About Us

In 1989, a time when children’s wear mainly consisted of an unexciting array of products, Susan Ingram set out to create something different. 

She founded the HELENA & HARRY IV CO. with the goal of creating beautiful, unique children’s clothing made from the finest quality fabrics. Eventually selling in stores such as Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys New York, and many other fine stores all over the world, the HELENA & HARRY IV CO. quickly became synonymous with the finest special occasion clothes for children.


“They’re also intended to be heirlooms, passed from one sibling to the next, from one generation, to the following.” - Susan Ingram in Neiman Marcus’ Incircle Magazine.


For over thirty years, we have proudly produced HELENA & HARRY IV CO. products in the USA. Many are still made by the same hands that have sewn our products for over thirty years. It’s this level of craftsmanship and attention to detail that makes us proud to still call the HELENA & HARRY IV CO. a family company.
