#WCW : Coco Chanel

This weeks MILLY #WCW goes to the late, iconic mother of the little black dress: Coco Chanel. 

“I don’t do fashion. I am fashion.” Spoken by a true fashion icon. You recognize the name. Who better to toast our #WCW than to a woman who started creating iconic clothing in 1910. She started out by selling her own custom hats, and then expanded into creating the iconic Chanel suit. It was a revolutionary idea at the time – taking inspiration from menswear for women’s clothing.  But it paid off, Chanel has major fashion-respect today. 

So we toast our #WCW to you, Coco Chanel – we celebrate your life everyday in the fashion world.
