About us

  Xiaoxiao Designs (est. 2015) is a line of chic dancewear that incorporates elements of art, fashion, pop culture, and performance, worn worldwide by everyone from baby ballerinas to world-famous dancers like Marianela Núñez, as well as in custom designs made for the Harvard Ballet Company and American Ballet Theatre soloist Zhongjing Fang’s choreography. Owner Xiaoxiao Cao, a professional ballerina, began designing leotards for herself in 2014, after being unable to find garments that fully expressed her personal style. Made from high-quality materials to provide comfort and ensure long-lasting wear, Xiaoxiao Designs features fashionable feminine details such as lace, ruffles, ribbons, bows, rosettes, choker necklines, and dramatic cutouts in a wide array of stunning colors and luxurious fabrics.
