In 1926 Coco Chanel revolutionized the fashion world by publishing a simple black dress in American Vogue.
Vogue declared that the little black dress would become "a sort of uniform for women of taste".
During the Victorian and Edwardian age black was reserved for women in mourning. The little black dress must have been considered scandalous. But it was the "Roaring 20's" after all, and it was a time when women were breaking free from social and fashion conventions.
Chanel's LBD has proven to be timelessly elegant.
Through out the 20th century the LBD has been the dress of choice for women of taste.
Even in the 21st century, the Chanel LBD is still a classic.
