LBD launches in style - 20 June 2008

The 19th of June celebrated the launch of the Little Black Dress exhibition at the Fashion & Textile Museum. Supermodel Erin O’Connor was there to open the event on the night along with Zandra Rhodes and Richard O’Brien. Guests were dressed in theme; all laced in their very own LBD numbers from Zara to Armani.
