Coco

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.
