...This book does not feature a quintessential collection of little black dresses as its title would suggest. A more apt title would have been: Some Random Little Black Dresses to Consider.

Synopsis

Defined by the simplest parameters - colour and shape - yet voluminous in possibility, the little black dress is personalised by the designer who imagined it and the woman who wears it. This volume presents a timeless anthology, with each dress included in the show and catalogue an eloquent translation of an enduring icon.
