In 1947, in response tothe suffering of post-World War II France, an American grassroots campaignorganized a large-scale relief package. The following year France, moved bythis generosity, organized a gift in kind. As the aide was sent to Francehoused in boxcars and dubbed the "American Friendship Train" theFrench created the "Gratitude" or "Merci Train", a set of49 boxcars filled with gifts of thanks. Each of the 48 states was to receive aboxcar with the 49th shared between Washington D.C., and the Territory ofHawaii, which had contributed sugar on the Friendship Train. A wide array ofitems was included in these cars, from handmade children's toys to pricelessworks of art.

The Chambre Syndicale de la Couture de Parisienne, who, to raise money for theFrench people, had two years prior organized the Theatre de la Mode, a group offashion dolls dressed in clothing from the 1947 couture collections, chose tocreate a new set of fashion dolls, this time representing the evolution ofFrench fashion rather than the current season. Once again, the Syndicat tappedthe most talented and well-known fashion designers, hairstylists, and accessorydesigners of the time to create these miniature masterpieces.

The unique design of the fashion doll, originally created for Theatre de laMode and used again for the Gratitude Train was conceived by Eileen Bonabel,the plaster head by the artist Rebull. Each doll measures approximately 24inches tall, with bodies made entirely of open wire. Human hair was used tofashion the hairstyles. Each designer chose a year between 1715 and 1906 forwhich to dress his doll. Their varying sources of inspiration included works ofart, literature, and historic fashion plates. The Gratitude Train fashion dollsrepresent a unique moment in the history of couture as they represent not onlycreative interpretations of historic fashions by the greatest designers of theperiod, but also are infused with the unparalleled skill, care, and attentionto detail that would have been applied in their full-size counterparts.
