Coco Before Chanel by Matthew Alexandre

Legendary fashion designer Gabrielle Coco Chanel has changed the way we see fashion today as we know it. Born August 19, 1883, in Saumur, France. We all remember her famous for her timeless designs, trademark suits, and little black dresses. Chanel was raised in an orphanages and taught to sew. She had a brief career as a singer before opening her first clothes shop in 1910. In the 1920s, she launched her first perfume and introduced the Chanel suit and the little black dress.
Using knit, wool jersey, and fabrics and styles associated with menswear to remake the modern woman’s wardrobe with soft, practical clothing. In the 1930s, she made the Chanel suit—a soft, cardigan-like jacket often in robust materials with a skirt sufficiently slack to imply concavity between the legs—a modern staple. The fragrance Chanel No. 5, created in 1922, has driven the company with its reputation and profit. As the chief designer since 1983, Karl Lagerfeld has combined a loyalty to Chanel’s style signatures with an unmistakably modern taste. Because of its very classy and chic aesthetic, Chanel is by far my favorite designer brands of them all .
