Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art served as the perfect venue for Thursday night's glamorous Little Black Dress Event. Hosted by The Apparel Industry Board Inc. and Little Black Pearl, the LBD Event brought out the city's most style-savvy to celebrate every fashionista's favorite go-to dress. Set up in the airy, simplistic space of the MCA's main floor, the evening's showcase featured little black dresses by 19 Chicago designers. Each dress—shaped, cut, and styled according to the designer's unique vision—was put on display for a silent auction at first, and then brought to life through a runway show and formal auction later in the evening. The runway show included some well known Chicago names as guest models, and with the retail value of the dresses ranging from $100 to $900, many of the designers' fiercely competitive fans fetched great deals throughout the auction. The tone of the evening was lighthearted and fun as guests were able to support local design talent, benefit charity, and still go home happy with their own, one of a kind LBD.
