Coco Chanel: born in 1883 and died in 1971. What an incredible period to have lived and worked! To go from the very earliest days of electricity, the telephone, etc. all the way through the 60’s to cultural revolutions, television, and a man on the moon. And she was such an integral part of it!

Chanel is most famous for her suits + little black dresses. She borrowed from menswear to give women more options and – of course, sophistication – in their wardrobe. And for that we are forever indebted to her!

I leave you again with another fun video…you do need to know French lol, but it’s still interesting to watch! This is the debut of her 1959 collection. I wish we still dressed like this!

“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”
– Coco Chanel

  1. I can't see the video (I'm at work), but I know a bit of Coco Chanel's life. I read a biographical book on her life and how she come with the Chanel brand and she is a very inspiring woman! There's a lot more to her than just beautiful clothes.
