Chanel: Classy and Fabulous

"A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous." -Coco Chanel



The designer who changed the course of women's fashion with a brand that continues to thrive. She popularized costume jewelry, tans, sportswear fabrics and menswear inspiration. I can't wait to see the film about her life starring the French Amelie star, Audrey Tautou.
Coco left the dance halls and became Chanel during the age of the flapper and jazz culture.

She made costume jewelry acceptable and chic.

Men's fabrics like tweeds and jersey were made feminine with the luxury of detailing.
