Reigns Supreme: The Little Black Dress

None
10 a.m.-5 p.m., Thursday November 14
{venue_title}

The Oklahoma History Center is featuring a new exhibit from the Textiles Collection titled “Reigns Supreme: The Little Black Dress.” This special exhibit opens to the public on Thursday, December 20, 2012.

With the introduction of the little black dress by Coco Chanel in 1926, women have turned to this fashion staple ever since. Simple, elegant, timeless, and classic are all terms that sum up the little black dress and its role in fashion history.

Drawing from the fashion collection of the Oklahoma Historical Society, this exhibit will showcase over thirty examples of the little black dress. Homage will be given to Audrey Hepburn for her role as Holly Golightly in "Breakfast at Tiffany’s," directed by Blake Edwards of Tulsa. An additional feature of this exhibit will focus on the Stork Club which was founded in New York by native Oklahoman Sherman Billingsley.

For more information contact Jill Holt, Curator of Textiles, at (405) 522-0794 or by email at jholt@okhistory.org
