Originally founded October 1st, 1926, the little black dress (LBD) has remained relevant in every woman’s closet. Before Coco Chanel introduced the LBD, black was considered a color for mourning. Had you worn black for anything else besides grieving loss before 1926, you would have been considered indecent. It seemed almost instantaneous that the LBD transformed from a grieving outfit to a fashionable uniform essential for women. Almost 87 years later, the LBD remains an absolute essential for every woman of taste.
I always like to refer back to a quote from current Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld: “One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a little black dress.” So true, Karl. The LBD is an absolute essential for every lady.
