Style Inspiration: Coco Chanel

Famous French designer, Coco Chanel, is still considered to be one of the most important influences of Fashion Design. Known for her Modern and Practical designs, she is credited for the concept of the Little Black Dress (LBD) during the 1920′s. This is why many people still 'Chan(n)el' their inner Coco! ♥ ...

A Bit About Coco:

Fashion designer Coco Chanel, born August 19, 1883, in Saumur, France, was raised in orphanages and this is where she learnt to sew. Having a brief career as a singer before opening her first clothes shop in 1910, she went on to launch her first perfume and introduce the Chanel suit and the Little Black Dress in the 1920s.


Some of her Most Famous Quotes: 

From her Tweed Suits to her Hats, Furs, Stripes, and Pearls, Coco had her style defined to the 'T'. Mixing menswear and womenswear into androgynous-inspired heaven, the Chanel look is one that is always in fashion — Simply Timeless.
