The Little Black Dress Through The Ages

The Little Black Dress Through The Ages

The Little Black Dress, or LBD as it’s sartorially coined, is part of fashion folklore. Women turn to their little black dress in (fashion) times of need, be it for day, for a cocktail soiree, or just a night out on town, an LBD fixes any fashion crisis that may incur. It comes in many a shape and style; from tailored to billowy, to long to short, it’s even better if it’s designer, and even better if it’s vintage! To celebrate the little black dress in all its glory, The Sydney Fair will showcase a special Couture Exhibition ‘The Little Black Dress’, for the first time starting next Thursday 26th of May. Fashionistas, LBDs at the ready.
