Her determination, style, famous quotes, elegance and mystery created a fashion empire that continues to dominate the industry to date.

What makes Coco Chanel my “vintage inspiration” is her particular focus on class, elegance and style.

Chanel was not just a clothing company, it became a lifestyle marker for women of high society.

Fashion has radically changed since the 1900’s, so Coco’s disdain for short skirts and jeans are laughable today. However, a lot of her values, fashion and advice can still be sources for inspiration in modern day life.

It definitely is for me.
