Must-have little black dress

The new Mona Bismarck American Center exhibition puts a must-have of a woman’s wardrobe in the spotlight : the little black dress. The retrospective “Little Black Dress” shows that fashion has its own history, by presenting this clothing over the centuries. Black here is not ominous but on the contrary : it reveals woman beauty. Since Chanel’s Ford model, the Little Black Dress never stopped to be revisited. Classical merges with originality without giving up this emblematic black.  Originality of this retrospective : dresses presented are surrounded by bright red colorful walls, highlighting thus their elegance. To discover until September 2013.
