Portraits of new arrivals were used as a marker of a child's progress in the Society. Case studies of some children appeared in the newsletter 'Our Waifs and Strays' describing how they had been transformed from a 'potential street loafer' into a productive member of society. These studies were often illustrated with 'before and after' photographs, contrasting their ragged past with their new-found respectability.
Our unique “Vallmo” dress is inspired by a wonderful watercolour awash with poppies. In a cotton/silk print and embellished with tinted glass beads, this dress is a party-wear sensation! A dreamy style with lots of volume.
