Modernism, Femininity + Individualism through the Little Black Dress

Every since Marion Morehouse posed for Vogue’s May 1926 issue wearing Coco Chanel’s black sequence drop-waist dress, the little black dress has stood for more than just a closet staple, but as a symbol of change. It’s represented modernism in its rejection of sentimentality.  Femininity in its dignity.  And individualism in its rejection to blending in with colorful masses. Through constant reinvention, we can never get enough of this go-to garment.
