22 ways to say Black...

22 of the greatest fashion designers and newcomers have been commissioned to design their own infamous 'little black dress' which are emblazoned with swarovski crystals - for a charity auction! It is called '22 ways to say black' and One hundred per cent of the proceeds from the auction will go to the American Cancer Society and La ligue nationale contre le cancer in France.

The Unique pieces range from shifts to cocktail, bandeau and back again! From designers including Vivienne Westwood, Alberta Ferretti and Thakoon. The LBD's are to be displayed in the Phillips de Pury & Co gallery, New York from September the 7th - Ready for auction on September the 20th.

My favourites are the Marios Schwab and Richard Tisci for Givenchy. Stunning!
