This week, the fashion world lost one of its greatest stewards, Hubert de Givenchy. Most famously known for giving us that #littleblackdress moment from #BreakfastatTiffanys that will live on in style infamy for decades still to come. The #LBD is as iconic as Ms. Hepburn herself - timeless, sophisticated and the epitome of elegance. But where did the concept of the LBD originate? Fashion historians ascribe its origins to none other than Madame #CocoChanel , but the concept of wearing black as a fashion statement dates as far back as the fifteenth century. Back in the day black was reserved as a color for clergy members or those in mourning. That’s until Philip the Good, the Duke of Normandy, put it on the fashion map and began to wear black robes as a way to distinguish and set himself apart from other courtiers (#trendsetter ). It wasn’t until a few centuries later, post-World War I, that black became a wardrobe color staple and the LBD a rule of fashion. (Source: Paste Magazine)
