Coco Chanel

Születési dátum: 19. augusztus 1883
Halál dátuma: 10. január 1971
Más nevek: Coco Chanelová

Gabrielle Bonheur „Coco” Chanel francia divattervező, a Chanel divatház alapítója, az haute couture, a francia elegancia és a 20. század divatjának egyik legkiemelkedőbb képviselője. A modern, felszabadult, elegáns és dinamikus nő szimbóluma.

Tartós divattá tette a rövid szoknyát, a „kis fekete ruhát”, a csillogó kosztümékszereket és mindenekelőtt a világ legnépszerűbb parfümjét, a Chanel N°5-öt. Meghatározó védjegyei közé tartozik a tweed anyagból készített kosztüm, a kamélia virág, a több soros gyöngyből készült kosztümékszerek és a bézs színű, fekete orrú lábbeli.

Nevéhez fűződik a modern divat megalapozása. Szabászati stílusát az egyedi, férfias vonású, letisztult, néhol tengerészek és katonák öltözetére emlékeztető stílusjegyek jellemzik.

"Fekete ruhája és fehér gyöngyei forradalmasították a nőt és a női öltözködést." Wikipedia
