What better way to kickstart a blog on fashion than with Coco Chanel, the woman who gave the world the Little Black Dress, Chanel No 5  and the Chanel Jacket?

It was Chanel who made black chic.

Chanel’s  style quotient was all about understated elegance and her designs gave feminity a makeover.  She experimented with fabrics like jersey, tweed and borrowed a lot of ideas from men’s wear. She was a non-conformist which reflected on her designs.

She was a seamstress, a mistress of prominent men, a nurse during World War and  also had a Nazi lover.

The Little Black Dress is a staple in any woman’s wardrobe. It’s timeless by virtue of which it is a classic.  It was and continues to be simple and all about the cut and proportion.



Audrey Hepburn helped escalate it’s appeal in Breakfast At Tiffany’s.

One of the most expensive and exquisitive fragrances – Chanel No 5. The brand is represented Nicole Kidman and has many fans in Hollywood like Jennifer Aniston and Scarlette Johansson.


The Chanel Jacket was yet another masterpiece.


Karl Lagerfeld is now the head designer of the House of Chanel.
