For any remotely fashion conscious woman, the little black dress is (or as it is popularly known as the LBD), considered as essential as underwear in a woman’s wardrobe. Traditionally, black was a colour of mourning for years. However, when Vogue magazine published a drawing of a simple black dress designed by Coco Chanel in the year 1926, it helped change the way the world looked at it.
And then, Audrey Hepburn immortalised and made it an iconic dress in the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Although fashion trends constantly change, the little black dress not only survives but remains immune and modifies and adapts itself to the latest trends.
