During the Vintage Fair in Moda Shopping in Madrid that took place a few days ago, there was also an exhibition curated by Lorenzo Caprile about the evolution of the Little Black Dress through history. There were original dresses from each decade, and you could see the differences in styles in a very illustrative way. It is fascinating how fashion can show us so much about the society of a certain period. The austerity during wars, the paillettes during the good years… I hope they put up the exhibition again, it was really interesting.
I made my own selection of pictures of black dresses through history, from 1900 until now. Which is your favourite decade?
Lorenzo Caprile designed this beautiful top whose profits will be for the Curarte foundation. You can buy it here for 39,99€. It is really lovely!
