cococh-03Coco Chanel began her career as a fashion designer in 1909. She was one of the most powerful figure in the women’s liberation movement after World War 1.
All over the western world, women were fighting for equality and the right to vote. One means of expressing this new freedom was through appearance and dress.
Curls, frills and flounces were out. Short haircuts, tubular flat-chased silhouettes and simplification in design were in.
Coco Chanel maintained that couturiers were not artists, they were furnishers. She believed that women should dress simply and comfortably. This is why she has become one of the biggest fashion designers ever. She has fighted and created a lot of collections, she is also known of almost all the women in the world.
In her collections there are much clothes, perfumes, make-up, accessorizes and more.

Chanel died in 1971 at the age of 88, but under the talented designer Philipppe Guiborge, her business continued producing clothes which reflect the classic look of Chanel. The brand is still going unbelievably well, and they have a new collection every season.

Coco Chanel er en utrolig kvinne. Tenk å starte et så bra merke på begynnelsen av 1900-tallet! Jeg beundrer henne mye
