Beauty in Black

Black. It is one colour safe yet elegant, sexy yet could be professional too. A great example would be closet essential, the little black dress (LBD), which is synonymous with style. And from 16 March 2011 to 13 June 2011, a great range of 18 LBD's from the 1950s to 2000s will be showcased at the National Museum of Singapore for all to admire and even take a few notes.

Works from prominent designers, such as Cristobal Balenciaga, Hubert de Givenchy, Karl Lagerfeld and Thierry Mugler, as well as local pieces by leading designers, Benny Ong and Thomas Wee, are included in this exhibition.

But besides showcasing works of the masters, the exhibition explores the iconic status of the colour black in the fashion world as well as the creative use of black materials such as lace, fabrics, and shades to better accentuate the wearer's figure for all occasions, whether work or play.

Tickets go at SGD10 for adults, SGD5 for senior tourists, and free for children under the age of seven, students with valid passes, full-time NS men, senior citizens aged 60 and above, as well as free entry for all who come between 6pm to 8pm daily.
