In 1925, she introduced the legendary Chanel suit with the collarless jacket and fitted skirt, she was so ahead of her times, mixing elements from men’s clothing concentrating on comfort over the constraints of then popular fashions. She really helped women to say bye bye to corsets and confining garments. Again the 1920’s Chanel designed (LBD) THE Little Black Dress, a colour at the time and some what today associated with mourning, and showed just how chic it could be for evening wear. And of course the famous string of various pearls. I personally love her quote that she stated after a wedding proposal by the Duke of Westminster, ” As far as I know there have been many Duchess’s of Westminster, but Coco Chanel there is only one” She did not accept, and although she received many proposals after this one, she never married .
