See You at Barnum’s.

“When a little black dress is right, there is nothing else to wear in its place.”

So, let’s get it right.

As the ultimate blank canvas, the LBD knows a thing or two about foundation, which is where all good things start.

The Guggenheim in Bilbao, with all its undulating brilliance, does not exist without substantial rebar and concrete. The balsam fir you painstakingly chose as your ornamental canvas was scrutinized on height, posture, symmetry and fullness.

This is not trivial stuff.

We begin with a black fitted sheath dress, a historically classic foundation for your elegant blank canvas. Gehry would approve. We played around with silk and tweeds but the energy wasn’t quite right so we decided on a poly crepe for its texture and delicate weight; gives it just the right amount of pomp and circumstance as you enter, exit and cut the rug.

Here’s where we got creative...

Knee length with a fringed hemline to accentuate your own elegant undulation. We rounded the neckline and added a clear and silver crystal just below the center point. Below that, a diamond shaped cut, then an optional self-fabric scarf with fringe at both ends.

A friend of mine called it mod-deco.

I call it pretty close to right.

The Mod-Deco Little Black Dress (No. 5147). Poly crepe that is fully lined in stretch lining. Front and back princess seams. Straight bottom hem with 3" fringe. Bra keepers at shoulder. Back shoulder darts. Invisible zipper at center back with hook and eye at top. Imported.
