Infrared photography - how to keep black objects black?

I recently started shooting infrared with a Hoya R72, and it works really well. Today I had a model dressed in black in one of the shots, and for some reason her black outfit turned white. There were several other black objects in the frame that stayed black. My idea for the image was to have a silhouette of a person dressed in black, surrounded by a landscape in the typical infrared colors.

Does anyone know why this is happening, and what I can do to keep black objects in the ir-images?
