Every Stylish Woman Needs a Little Black Dress…..

In history Black clothing was associated with death, mourning, witch craft and mystery but that all changed when Coco Chanel used it in fashion and the little black dress was born.

Her intention for her 1926 garment was that it should be available to the widest possible market. Her creation revolutionised fashion. It’s been constantly reinvented and modified to reflect current trends, but remains as essential a part of women’s wardrobes as ever.

The beauty of a Little Black Dress is its versatility it can be worn casually or as a flaunted design on a runway or red carpet. It is that dress that if all else fails you know you can bring out your Little Black Dress.  The term LBD was coined by advertisers as they spun the dress as a must have for the modern day woman.

Perhaps the most iconic little black dress of all is a work of the 1960s: Audrey Hepburn famously wore a little black Givenchy dress as Holly Golightly in the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the movie that spawned a million Halloween costumes.
