About Us

Black Dress Label Logocame into being after a lengthy discussion focusing on the difficulty of finding dresses with sleeves, that aren’t halfway up the thigh, yet are elegant, sassy and feel fabulous to wear.  So, we decided to give the idea of creating our own brand a go, sourcing perfect fabrics and producing dresses in limited numbers and eighteen months later have been thrilled to be featured by The Times fashion column as one of ” The 21 dress brands you need to know”!

We share a love of many of the same designs, but have completely different remits when choosing dresses for ourselves – we couldn’t be less alike in terms of shape, therefore what works for one doesn’t necessarily work for the other.  We have learnt at this stage of our lives that we need our clothes to work their passage and want to invest in dresses that will take us anywhere; that flatter and ensure we always look good.

In our collection you will find day and evening dresses that celebrate individual styles and figures – beautifully made with immense attention to detail by a small, independent UK manufacturer  – and we welcome your feedback as we work on future designs.

We hope you enjoy them!

Emma and Sue
