Try fruit fillings and dairy free buttercream using either dairy-free butter or shortening. I would expect there are at least some fondants that are dairy free. I know marzipan is so that could be an option too.
If you search for vegan fillings and frostings you should find plenty
my kids have dairy allergies and sometimes have reactions to dark chocolate even though it doesn't contains dairy because it's typically processed in the same area where other chocolates that do contain dairy are.

Same here, for dairy-free orders the only safe chocolate we've found is Whole Foods vegan chocolate chips, Enjoy life chocolate chips, and Hershey Special Dark cocoa powder. For margarine we use Earth Balance soy-based margarine.

He has an allergy to milk so i assume is dairy, please correct me if I am wrong, this is something NEW to me.
If he is allergic to casein (the main protein in milk) you will need to be very careful about cross-contamination. If it is lactose intolerance that's usually less severe, but in either case your best bet is going through all the ingredients you will be using and making sure he is OK with them.
