Fun Facts about Little Black Dress
During the early 20th century, black dresses were reserved for mourning. Typical mourning duration was 2 years, first 12 months plain black dress, following 9 months of plain black with a little bit of black lace or black accessories, and final three months black was gradually replaced by other darker colors such as deep purple or navy blue.
Then Coco arrived. Revolutionizing the little black dress, Chanel designed a loose, calf-length frock with a pair of diagonal lines forming a "V" at the center. It appeared in that year’s issue of Vogue and the little black dress drew both praises and skepticism as designers have their doubts whether this “widow’s seeds” will make it into store shelves. But with the wars in first half of 20th century, women joining work force needed to have a practical uniform which could serve as day to night all occasion dress. And so the popularity of little black dress is a reflection of the role of women in today's world. Independent, practical, smart and beautiful.
