About The Brand

Sutherby Lane is an Australian label crafting beautifully classic, heirloom clothing for babies and children. Our exclusive designs break through the white noise of modern children's clothing, providing a refined collection that celebrates the traditional smocked & embroidered handcrafts of yesteryear.

Sutherby Lane believes in cherishing infancy & youth, by dressing children as children. 

The brand was established in early 2020 by Owner & Designer, Lucy Davies. Lucy is the proud wife to a fourth-generation beef & grain farmer, and mother to two young children. Sutherby Lane is run from the little cottage on her husband's family-owned agricultural property in rural Australia. What initially began as a creative outlet whilst on maternity leave with her first baby, has flourished into an internationally recognised brand & a rewarding career in children's clothing design. Lucy’s passion for timeless fashion only continues to grow & she finds immense fulfilment in creating authentic & beautifully classic pieces for your child’s wardrobe. 

The Story Behind Sutherby Lane

I have fond memories, as a little girl, of wearing pretty hand-smocked dresses & dainty embroidered outfits. I was very fortunate that my mother kept most of these special pieces, which soon became dress-ups for my childhood dolls & inspiration for my own child's wardrobe sometime in the future.


In 2019, my husband & I were blessed to welcome our first child, a precious baby boy named James. I became increasingly frustrated by the lack of classic baby clothes in Australia & dreamed of making this style more accessible. A few sketches later and the Sutherby Lane journey began.

The name "Sutherby" was derived from my late grandmother's name. She was a lady of exquisite taste & timeless style, and always returned from her overseas travels with beautiful smocked clothing for her grand-children. For this reason, it seemed only appropriate to name a classic childrenswear label in her honour. 

It is my wish that Sutherby Lane becomes an adored member of your child's wardrobe - carrying them through all their day to day and precious memories. I hope you find as much joy in my designs, as I have found in creating them for you. 

Wear with pride, cherish dearly & pass on for generations to come,
