Loving the little black dress

Written by Kate Manley

This fabulous foodie issue is certainly mouthwatering. All good things to appeal to the aspiring home cooks in all of us. Not to mention the brilliant chefs in our most popular restaurants here. We are spoiled for choice, especially places we can get together with friends, dress up and wear something quite ritzy.

So this month we are celebrating special occasion dressing featuring a timeless and beloved style.
This quote from fashion designer Stella McCartney sums it up really well: “A little black dress is something to rely on. To fill you with confidence and ease. To have an attitude that is pure and effortless, yet sexy and classy”.

This iconic fashion item first came into prominence in 1926 when Vogue published a drawing by Coco Chanel. Later, in 1961, Audrey Hepburn wore the famous black evening gown in the movie ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.

So you can see that you will be in good company when you are seen in your ‘little black dress’.
