About the Little Black Dress Designer Competition
Texas design students entered dresses into the LBDD Competition. Finalists were announced in October 2016. In partnership with the competition, were social and fashion icons to be designated muses. These muses selected their favorite dress entries.

For nine months, the student designers collaborated with their muse to create a final design from their original entry. Mentors shadowed the process and offered design advice and critique to the students.
