Reigns Supreme: The Little Black Dress
With the introduction of the little black dress by Coco Chanel in 1926, women have turned to this fashion staple ever since. Simple, elegant, timeless, and classic are all terms that sum up the little black dress and its role in fashion history.
Drawing from the fashion collection of the Oklahoma Historical Society, this exhibit showcases more than 30 examples of the little black dress. Homage is given to Audrey Hepburn for her role as Holly Golightly in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, directed by Blake Edwards of Tulsa. An additional feature of this exhibit focuses on the Stork Club which was founded in New York by native Oklahoman Sherman Billingsley.
On exhibit now at the Oklahoma History Center.
