Happy 128th Birthday, Mademoiselle Chanel
Poise, elegance, simplicity = Mademoiselle Chanel
On August 19, 1883, the world was graced with a woman who would revolutionize fashion with her incomparable elegance, simplistic vision, and endearing perseverance. Her name is Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel. From her humble beginnings as an orphan in Aubazine to her complete domination of the fashion industry, Mademoiselle Chanel was a woman of unbelievable triumphs and survival. Chanel is directly responsible as to why people wear comfortable jersey knits, costume jewelry, little black dresses, shoulder-bags, and the timeless Chanel style to this very day. As a devout admirer of both Chanel and her global brand, I'm quite proud and happy to celebrate this day for such an incredible woman I've respected and loved for as long as I can remember. Even though she has come to pass, the Chanel legacy will never die.
