For the record

In 'The price of sparkle is child slavery'...concerning the use of child labour by sections of the Indian garment industry, we published a photograph of a dress by Boudicca Fashion House. We did not intend to suggest that Boudicca makes garments that involve child labour. Boudicca has written to applaud the article and point out that it is actively opposed to child labour. The Boudicca dress featured crystals that had been heated on at Boudicca's studio in London. All crystals used on Boudicca's garments are either heated on in London or hand sewn in Europe.
