**Coco Chanel's birthday - it's today - 19th August**

Despite having died forty years ago in 1971, Coco Chanel's work is still alive. She would have been 129 today :)  Everyone know who she is and how amazing the label is doing even 40 years after her death. She defined an era of style with her classic, timeless designs and redefined what it was to dress as a woman. A firm believer in elegance and the wearing of perfume, she had a lot to say about life - whether it was how to achieve your dreams or the importance of putting on make-up. She’s a household name; a legendary fashion icon who, even if you’re not a fashion follower, have been unsuspectingly influenced by her genius.

 Here are some facts about Coco Chanel:

• Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel was born in 1883 and died in 1971
• She created a new look for women in the 20th century, creating clothes that were primarily comfortable. A Chanel suit of 1923 or handbag is still seen as a landmark purchase for women of increasingly younger ages
• The Chanel No.5 scent is the best selling in the world
• The interlocking Cs of Coco Chanel remain one of the ultimate brand insignia
• Since 1983, Chanel has been designed by Karl Lagerfeld
• The building where her apartment is in Paris was bought by Chanel in 1920, and still houses the ground-floor shop, the haute couture workrooms in the attic (where 100 seamstresses still work entirely by hand), and what is now Karl Lagerfeld's study

Coco's famous quotes which so many of us know.....

"Elegance is not the perogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future."

"A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future." 

"If a man speaks badly about all women, it usually means he was burned by one woman." 

"Nothing goes out of fashion sooner than a long dress with a very low neck."  

"In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different."  

"Fashion passes, style remains."- One of my favorite quotes


Have a wonderful week everyone. Justyna xxx
