We are suckers for anything that incorporates the phrase: “little black dress”; so it was no surprise we were impulsive in purchasing, The Little Black Dress: Vintage Treasure, at the gift shop at the Arclight theater in Hollywood. This book takes us on a mini journey through the life of the LBD. We begin in 1926 with the one and only Mme Coco Chanel and travel through time to more modern and non-traditional silhouettes by designers such as John Galliano.
Author and international fashion expert, Didier Ludot, shares his enthusiasm for the LBD through a quick read and many pictures of the dress in all it’s forms. This book is a good addition to our fashion books collection.
