ELSA SCHIAPARELLI (1890 1973)

I couldn't see where her uniqueness coming from when I look at Schiaparelli's childhood.

  • Chanel
    Chanel CHANEL Gabrielle ‘Coco\' Chanel was born in Saumur, France in 1884. Vogue Magazine referred to her as "the couturier who takes no account of fashion, who pursues her own faultlessly elegant line in the quiet confidence that fashion will come back to her - and sure enough it always does." Chanel began designing heavily during the 1920s. Her first outfits were wool jerseys, and were very simple. She became famous for the simple look of her extremely classy outfits. Chanel stayed away from
