Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel was born on the 19th of August 1883 in Saumur, France, and died on the 10th of January 1971 in Paris, France. Coco was a french designer and is the founder of the brand “Chanel”.   Coco’s aesthetic was jewellery, hand bags, clothes and perfume.  She was the only fashion designer to appear on the Time Magazine’s “100 most influential people of the 20th century”.  Coco’s company “Chanel” is a company that produces and designs clothes, perfume, skin care products and jewellery.  Coco eliminated corsets from women’s fashion and used “jersey” to make a new, more comfortable “corset”. We think that Coco has very unique designs and that she is a great designer. Some of her most famous designs are:

The Chanel Suit

The Little Black Dress

The Chanel Bag
