What exquisite examples of little black dresses. I also never before appreciated that during the war black would have become commonplace given the number of people in mourning.

Ingrid, given that black no longer signifies mourning, it makes me wonder how individuals mark this type of event. Do people adopt particular dress for mourning? If so, these symbols wouldn't be widely understood as signifying mourning because they would be so personal.
