Established in 2008, Little Black Dress Designer (LBDD) is a statewide competition in which fashion students submit their versions of the iconic LBD. Professional designers, luxury retailers, and the fashion elite make up the roster of judges who decide scholarship winners based upon the students’ designs.
On Wednesday, Houstonians slipped on their LBDs and headed to Tootsies for the official kickoff party. Tootsies put on an LBD-fueled fashion show; given the restrained color palette, the show's organizers opted not to restrain themselves when it came to the models' hair.
