Coco Chanel

Possibly the most fabulous designer ever?
I had to show my love for the fabulous Coco Chanel by dedicating my first ever post to the queen of fabulousness!

Its true, shes an absolute idol of mine; elegance, originality, audacity and style... who wouldn't admire this?

I remember getting my one and only fabulous pair of Chanel sunglasses...I'm pretty sure I cried! Sad, I know but can you really blame me, Chanel has to be one of the most fabulous brands ever. Not only are all the designs and clothes fabulous, but there is a legend behind the brand. Coco Chanel changed everything, her modernist philosophy, menswear-inspired fashions and pursuit of expensive simplicity made her arguably the most important figure in the history of 20th-century fashion.

No doubt, of course there are a lot of other talented and fabulous designers, but she was the one who created a new style, invented a new fashion industry,and violated the rules, therefore can be treated as a fabulous example to follow, an idol.

She created not only fashionable and immortal suits, the ageless and fabulous “little black dress” and perfume Channel № 5, she made women believe that they can live their own lives, they could be independent, in a time that said they couldn't, and wear clothes according to their own preferences.
