Last night Team LBD held an exclusive party to celebrate the launch of our debut Little Black Dress Collection of 18 new and exclusive party-perfect LBDs, and needless to say it was a huge success. Held at Manchester's hottest new venue, the exquisite Manchester House, partygoers were treated to skyline views on the twelfth floor and Champagne on arrival. From the canapés to the cocktails, the bloggers and the guests, our models and the dresses, see what went on at our Little Black Dress party...
To show off our new Collection, which is divided into five different moods to represent how you want to feel: perhaps glamorous, maybe sexy or feminine, classic or unique, we had five gorgeous girls from Industry models showcase the dresses. From left to right: Rachel in our Kate Dress for a feminine look, Ksenija channeling glamour in our Rita dress, Charlotte modelling our unique Alexa dress, Lydia looking classic in the Coco dress and Anna turning up the heat in our sexy Diana dress.
Hosted at the glamorous Manchester House, the stunning urban view and plush modern interior were just the right setting to show off our debut Collection.
We started with Champagne, of course! And although a glass of wine in between was lovely, the star of the night had to be our delicious Little Black Dress cocktail, a sweet fruity twist on the French Martini.
The main event was definitely our gorgeous new dresses. From the Twitterati to fashion magazine editors, bloggers, celebrities and stylists, everybody fell head over heels for our debut collection. All named after style icons past and present, the 18 dresses are also divided into moods, from glamorous to sexy and unique, so everyone could find a dress to match their mood. If you haven't seen it yet (where have you been) check it out here.
Crafted by none other than Michelin starred chef Aiden Byrne, there was everything from popping pumpkins on a spoon, tasty truffle risotto balls, duck delights and popcorn-esque pork crackling with apple sauce. Just thinking about it and our mouths are watering again!
From the bloggers and models, to magazine editors and half of the Hollyoaks

star Jorgie Porter turn out in impeccably good fashion.
You didn't think we would miss the party did you?! Team LBD all wore dresses from the new Collection and although we couldn't get our heels off soon enough, taking off the dresses after the party left us all feeling a lot less glamorous. From left to right: our wonderful intern Ella in the Audrey dress, ¬£120, graphic designer Jenna channeling Ms Monroe in the Diana dress, ¬£95, editorial assistant Rebecca in the Gemma dress, ¬£90, and our editor Nathalie wowing in the Jessica dress, ¬£90.
