Oleg Cassini and the Classic Little Black Dress

One of the extra special pieces that we have in store at the moment and featured in our show, is a classic black dress by designer, Oleg Cassini. (pictured above, worn with vintage silver pumps and silver purse) Cassini was best known for being one of the favorite designers of the first lady, Jacqueline Kennedy. Jackie will always remain one of history's greatest style icons. Cassini was also a favoured designer of Grace Kelley and Audrey Hepburn.
