bellaobastian is attracted to the Scandinavian life and style of the early 1900 century and is inspired by a time when the cold required layers of garments and when the poverty brought inheritance of clothing. We fancy the journey of high quality garments from new and marvelous to the charm of outgrown and worn.

The life at the Swedish orphanage Västerhaga consist of harsh winters and hot working days under a burning sun meanwhile the beautiful summers passes by. An existence where the colors of the once elegant and tailored clothes turned gray of dust.
