The Little Black Dress is one of the fashion icons of our time, inspiring designers from the moment it was introduced by Chanel in 1926, through Givenchy's 1961 creation for Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, to the myriad current fashion designers the world over. It is in this sartorial spirit that this contest was created to support young, up-and-coming fashion design students from Texas. More info at www.littleblackdressproject.com.
