Something I learned from a very young age from my mother, is to invest in a little black dress. Why is it that the little black dress has been an essential part in a woman’s closet? Could it be the simplicity or the slimming effect it offers? Whatever the case may be, the little black dress has been made popular by celebrities, designers and the everyday woman.
SCAD presented the Little Black Dress exhibition which opened in September curated by Andre Leon Talley. The exhibition displays 80 timeless garments showing versatility and elegance in their own way. It embodies independence and the transition of the of the timeless garment throughout the years.
Featured garments in the exhibition include Tom Ford, Carolina Herrera, Chanel, Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Oscar de la Renta, Givenchy, Ralph Lauren and many, many more. I had so many favorites and an appreciation for all.
