Gabrielle Coco Chanel

Sometimes  when we see famous designers on t.v and magazines or even in major department stores we dream that, that is our brand. and then suddenly we get discouraged thinking that’s just wishful thinking and about all the obstacles and reasons why it will never be us. For the next week I will be highlighting a few of our most famous fashion designers, and the obstacles they overcame to become the major fashion moguls that they are today. I hope this gives you all a little inspiration.

The story of fashion designer Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel is literally a rags-to-riches tale. Born in 1883, Chanel spent her early childhood in a French orphanage, where she learned how to sew. In 1901, Chanel left school to work with a Parisian tailor. During this time she began designing hats, which attracted the attention of the elite. She opened her own business in 1910.

After the First World War, Coco Chanel turned the fashion world upside down by using common fabrics and simple designs to create an elegant and understated style. In 1926, she gave the world the little black dress, a simple design that proved versatile and long-lasting. Other famous Chanel creations included the classic Chanel handbag and Chanel No. 5, a perfume that still enjoys some popularity today.
