England Puts On Its little black dress

Little Black Dress Back 1.2.jpg

After four years stateside, the fancy-schmancy fundraiser little black dress has packed up for Manchester, England, where the world’s #1 fashion necessity will be envisioned by Brit designers Paul Smith, Betty Jackson, Jean Muir, Ben De Lisi, Vicky Martin, Gorgeous Couture, Tracey Boyd, Ben Sherman and more.

The March 25 gala is invite-only, but since we didn’t actually get our hands on the invitation (above), by our friends at Creative Intelligence, we won’t be doing any pond-hopping later this week. However, for the first time in the event’s history, an exhibition of the slinky-sexy creations will be open to the public. At Urbis, in Manchester, until May 21, 2006.
