That trusty fashion staple, the little black dress, is about to be transformed yet again by emerging Australian designers for next years ‘The Spirit of the Black Dress’ exhibition. The exhibition pays homage to the black frock and celebrates young designers, providing them the opportunity become part of the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. Applicants are assessed on their originality, silhouette and texture, and most importantly they must use sustainable thinking, production and materials! Ten winning designs will be chosen to feature at the festival. If you think you have what it takes, submissions are open until November 24.
