With the ability to go from day to night effortlessly, harnessing a timeless elegance by just a hint of the addition of a few carefully selected accessories, the Little Black Dress (LBD) exudes everything that is sophisticated and functional.
If you are thinking Audrey Hepburn when you read this then you have the picture perfect example of that same classical style. Not fussy or over styled and complicated. But exuding a charm that will defy the years.
The makeover of Cleveland’s Bloomfield Street Park
Translate this authentic and well-founded model into a public space that can be accessed and utilized for community interaction and engagement, and we have our very own “Style Icon” of “LBD” proportions right in the middle of Cleveland. Functional fashion as it were. Something to be admired, enjoyed and celebrated.
This is a space that accommodates families, the local community and tourists, businesses, festivals etc. It’s comfortable, classy and carries itself with ease without the need for excessive ornamentation. It’s this kind of versatility that will make it a star.
In the words from the poem of the same name by John Keats “A thing of beauty is a joy forever”
