Coco Chanel was a pioneering French Fashion designer whose modernist thought, menswear-inspired fashions, and pursuit of expensive simplicity made her an important figure in 20th-century fashion. She was the founder of one of the most famous fashion brands, Chanel.
During her work she met Etienne Balsan, a wealthy textile manufacturer and she began designing hats as a hobby.
Chanel became a licensed modiste (hat maker) in 1910 and after that she launched her career as fashion designer when she opened her next boutique. Chanel created loose casual clothes made out of jersey, a material typically used for men’s underwear.
These days, the label Chanel is one of the biggest fashion houses in the world and Coco Chanel is seen as a pioneer of fashion.
I think Coco Chanel alsways did her own thing and stood out. She showed that as a women you can be independant.
