Gabrielle Chanel, known profoundly as Coco Chanel was a French Fashion Designer and the inventor of the LBD (The little black dress). She was born in 1883 and died in 1971 but her name lives on through her brand and the classic work she created throughout the years.
Chanel is practically a household name whether you know her background, love the luxury of Chanel or know it from its merchandise. The Chanel logo is a fashion landmark throughout the world and everyone knows No.5 but there was so much more behind the brand and more so, the women behind the brand.
If you haven’t already, I suggest you watch “Coco Avani Chanel” (Coco before Chanel) based on her life story especially if you are looking to start a career in the Fashion Industry. It is very inspiring and is bound to get your motivated! It also gives you a deep insight to her struggle to make it in a world where everyone laughed at her designs and ideas but she persisted through and ignored the naysayers! As the saying goes there is genuis in madness..
She paved the way for Women’s comfort in fashion. If it wasn’t for Coco Chanel we might all be still be stuck in corsets and heavy layered skirts as everyday wear. For that I am forever grateful to her. She managed to blend comfort with class, simple but chic cuts and style with elegance! Here’s to you Coco Chanel!
