    Latest Fashion News: Coco Chanel’s Birthday

    August 19th, 2014

    In honor of her birthday today, we’d like to remind you what a great style icon Coco Chanel was.

    The French fashion couturier, Gabrielle Bonheur ‘Coco’ Chanel, lived from August 19th 1883 to January 10th 1971. Coco Chanel made history as the most risk taking designer of her time. With her futuristic philosophy of combining menswear items with chic and sophisticated women’s fashion, she became one of the most iconic fashion figures of all times. Chanel, who established her namesake brand in 1909 in Paris, has been credited with liberating the conservative women’s fashion post World War I. Throughout her life, Chanel’s sense of good taste and visionary entrepreneurship helped to grow the brand to one of the biggest and most influential fashion houses up to this day. By now, Chanel sells everything fashion related from handbags to accessories and fragrances. Chanel’s perfume creation ‘Chanel No. 5′ remains one of the most iconic fragrances ever made. The brand, still headquartered in Paris, sells its products in more than 300 locations around the world. At present, fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld is acting as Chanel’s Creative Director.

    Our favorite quote of hers: “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” – Coco Chanel
