In 1926, Coco Chanel recreated the little black dress as we know it today when she designed a simple, short black dress that was published in Vogue.

Prior to the 1920s, black was strictly reserved for times of mourning. The fashion bible described the dress as “Chanel’s Ford” after the Model T, because like Henry Ford’s popular car of that time, Chanel’s LBD was accessible to women of all social classes.
