The Little Black Dress

Versatile, dependable and affordable, the Little Black Dress, or LBD has become the fashion equivalent of a Model T Ford.

In this illustrated lecture, historian Leslie Goddard, Ph. D., explores the history of this fashion icon. Learn how Chanel helped disassociate black from mourning, how Audrey Hepburn helped establish the LBD; and how it has been reinvented by everyone from Betty Boop to Prada.
