Closet – Fashion Designer Adam Edelberg
Legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld had once quoted, “One is never overdressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress.”
The quintessential little black dress, also known as the LBD, is a classic and timeless piece that had invariably found its way into every woman’s wardrobe when Coco Chanel introduced the iconic piece in the 1920s. Since then, the little black dress has become a symbol of elegance and understated beauty. Fashion designer Adam Edelberg reveals, “Prior to the 1920s, wearing a black color dress was reserved for attending funerals and period of mourning. Chanel revolutionized the trend in 1926 when she conceptualized a sophisticated short black dress. Vogue magazine published the illustration under the title ‘Chanel’s Ford.'”
The dress soon soared the heights of popularity as it was accessible to women belonging to every social class. Through the decades, the versatile little black dress has undergone various transformations in terms of style and design and is still popular for its power to make a woman feel beautiful, confident, glamorous, and sexy. The chic little black dress has become a wardrobe essential for every fashionista as it flatters all body types and is perfect for every occasion, party, or even a date night.
Edelberg believes every woman should own at least one little black dress. His reasons:
- The color black is often associated with minimalism and mysterious allure. The little black dress with an elegant accessory effortlessly lifts the spirit and makes one feel fabulous.
- The versatility of the little black dress makes it practical to wear for formal professional meetings and casual gatherings. Hence, it will always stay in fashion.
- Depending on the occasion, the little black dress can be enhanced with sophisticated jewelry, clutch, and high stilettos; think Audrey Hepburn from ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ for a glamorous night or dressed down with an addition of blazer for work or a scarf and ballerina flats for a casual evening. It has infinite styling possibilities.
- There are various styles and designs one can add to their collection, such as a plain fitted short dress, with sequins, off-shoulder, a halter neck, an A-Line, frill detailing, and so much more.
Edelberg is a famous fashion designer from Berlin, Germany, who has styled several pop stars from Russia, dressed singer Lady Gaga and several women from Germany, China, Russia, and the UK in stunning couture gowns.
