Since the dawn of time, ladies have been trumpeting the importance of the "-Little Black Dress". A dress for all occasions, however glamorous or somber.
Without the ultimate LBD, a lady's wardrobe can somehow seem devoid of function, a huge gaping hole in the fashion needs of every stylish woman!

99% of us do indeed own the LBD- the problem is that we have now worn it so often, it becomes a source of dread to have to, once again, don the same, safe old dress, with the same cardigan and the same court shoes that have satisfied many a social style dilemma in the past.

What we're in need of is a good old re-vamp- and here to provide just that is the UK's top style King- Mark Heyes.
