What is the Little Black Dress Initiative?

The Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a global initiative started by the Junior League of London to raise awareness of the impact of poverty. Advocates wear one black dress (or outfit) for five consecutive days to illustrate the effects poverty can have on a woman’s access to resources, her confidence, and professional opportunities. Each Advocate wears along with her dress a pin that reads “Ask Me About My Dress”, which invites dialogue among colleagues, friends, and strangers about this important initiative.

  Throughout the week, Junior League of Lafayette and LBDI Advocates seek to raise funds and raise awareness about Junior League of Lafayette programs and projects supporting the community in Lafayette.
