The history of the little black dress The little black dress – Coco Chanel’s timeless classic has been around for nearly a century, to celebrate, here’s a history of this unassuming wardrobe staple! 4 Responses Mademoiselle Demi Monde December 6th, 2012 Great little (black) post! Do you not think that perhaps the LBD was called Ford in the 20’s in reference to Henry Ford’s famous adage: “Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants so long as it is black”? Reply Lena December 7th, 2012 Definitely, I’ve thought so too! Reply Susan B December 6th, 2012 Great article. I loved seeing how the LBD dress has changed through the years.
