Well we are officially into the first week of December and party season is well and truly upon us with works do’s, nights with the girlies and family parties a go-go and finding the perfect dress to wear can be such a ‘mare. I’m such a dresses girl and love to dress up and feel fantastic.

One thing I do hate though is after you’ve trawled the high street, you look and more importantly feel your best and then you walk into a party to see someone wearing the same dress as you. Not cool. I recently discovered Littleblackdress.co.uk and they have a gorgeous 17 piece capsule collection of dresses this Winter designed by fashion students at Salford University.

Being a North-West gal born and bred, when I read about this I thought it was such a fantastic idea. Brand are really connecting with the customer lately through social networking and blogger outreach so using design students is a fantastic touch.

I know brands have worked with fashion students before, namely Asos and River Island, but to work with universities outside of London is a great way to showcase Manchester and the North-West as having style and being fashion-forward. The students were asked to make a special, unique and statement-worthy LBD and with fabrics used such as luxe lace or delicate chiffon and laser cut-out detail and tough leather they are a great shout and all just £90 each!

I love that the dresses cover each body stype with sleeves if you want to cover your arms and all lengths from short to midi and maxi. My personal faves are the embellished collar prom dress and the long sleeve black dress with open back. Both are a beautiful fit and shape so you feel special but don’t have everything on show which I just hate! They are perfect for Christmas, what do you think?
