Coco Chanel

By: Nancy Cartias

Gabrielle Chanel was born in Samur, France on August 19, 1883.

She grew up in an orphanage, where her dad had placed her after her mother died. her father had abandoned her. She was raised by nuns, who had taught her how to sew.

When she was a brief singer as she performed at clubs places such as Vichy and Moulins they had nicknamed her coco. Some say that they called her that because of the songs she had sang.

More than 300 stores worldwide sell 3 billion products each year.

She had created the little black dress which had became very famous, women suites with ties and striped sailor shirts for women

During World War ll caused Coco to close her shops in the 1920's she launched her first perfume and introduced the chanel.

In the 1920s, Chanel took her thriving business to new heights. She launched her first perfume, Chanel No. 5, which was the first to feature a designer’s name.

Perfume “is the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory of fashion. . . . that heralds your arrival and prolongs your departure,” Chanel once explained.

Coco Chanel has made a huge effect in the fashion industries she had paved a way for female designers to express their creativity for women to have clothes.

Her clothing is interesting because she was the first women to make different clothes for women because they were always wearing corsettes and she made thing that women usually didnt wear.For example, the little black dress and women suites.

She was a very brave women because she broke the barrier of women clothing and mens clothing by creating a variety of clothes for women.Creative because she tried to make women clothing out of mens clothing try to make it creatively for women too.

Classy because she had made clothing for women to feel good about themselves not to exploit them that she did make that type of clothing.

Her clothing was very interesting because she made women clothing out of mens clothing but, made it feminen. She had made one of the first women suites which is so amazing

In my opinion I think that Coco Chanel's designs are really nice and classy which I am all about. They aren't too risque just simple and elegant.
