This children’s summer dress by Dutch clothing brand C&A is made of blue cotton decorated with white polka dots, which are complimented with coordinated details and accessories such as the white cotton collar and cuffs, a satin ribbon bow and trim and a plastic belt. It is a sample from 1997 and was donated to the London College of Fashion’s archives when the C&A store on Oxford Street closed. As the dress is a sample donated straight from the brand’s store, it was never sold or worn and so is in good condition. It is machine sewed and produced by Carfax. The London College of Fashion Archive does not have many examples of children’s clothes making this a noteworthy piece.
