About Little Black Dress Designer...

The Little Black Dress never goes out of style, inspiring the world since 1926. Like its namesake, the LITTLE BLACK DRESS DESIGNER competition takes fashion back to its roots and gives students and emerging designers the chance to re-imagine a fashion icon for a chance to win academic scholarships, brand funding and incredible opportunities for real-life career networking. The competition was founded in 2008 by Jeff Shell, director of Houston-based modeling and acting firm Neal Hamil Agency. Since the competition’s founding, LBDD has awarded more than $100,000 in scholarships to Texas students.
