Megan Hess: The Little Black Dress is an illustrated love story about fashion's most enduring and chic uniform, celebrating the designers, the women and of course the dresses.

A piece of fashion is so much more than an object. To the designer who created it, the muse who inspired it, the fashion lover who lusts after it, the stylist who is lucky enough to own it, or the star who made it iconic – that fashion piece is part of a story.

Introduced by Coco Chanel and made famous by Audrey Hepburn, the little black dress redefined how women dress and remains one of the most elegant and versatile pieces in any wardrobe. Vogue said it would become ‘a sort of uniform for all women of taste’ – a prophecy that has more than come true. And this little book is the perfect accessory.

Filled with fascinating information and stunning illustrations from Megan Hess, and packaged up in a beautiful hardback, Megan Hess: The Little Black Dress is a timeless love story, and the first in Megan Hess' new Ultimate Fashion Wardrobe series.
