Mademoiselle Chanel

The goddess of fashion and my role model, Coco Chanel, once said "Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in they sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." This is my favorite Chanel quote because it is so real. She is saying that fashion can come from anything or anywhere. Fashion designers have always taken inspiration from the things around them that they see and feel. Chanel herself designed garments that reflected the uniform she wore at the convent she lived at. In addition, Chanel was always ahead of the curve, and other designers take inspiration from her aesthetic. She designed comfortable and easy to wear fashions that went against the more avant garde, uptight clothing that was worn by the women of her time. In a short time women realized how wonderful Chanel's fashions were and made her immortal. Now, her brand is the creme de la creme.
