I have always admired the elegance of Chanel's classic designs, however after watching the Chanel inspired movie, "Coco Before Chanel", I have a renewed love for her and the fashion house that still bears her name.
Not only was the movie an amazing love story - comparable to those of Jane Austin, but the strong independent personality of Coco Chanel leaves you no choice but to admire her and her style. A feminist before her time, Coco managed to build a fashion empire during a time when women were barely permitted to work outside of the home. Truly an inspiration to all women and all fashionistas!! Be sure to check out the movie if you have time!!
Coco Chanel once said that, "In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different." It is this difference which I have always strived to have. It is this difference which sets you apart from all of the others who simplicity becomes mundane.
