Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 15.5 x 23 cm. Based on the life of iconic fashion designer Coco Chanel, Mademoiselle Chanel imagines the rise of the daughter of a laundrywoman who, through driving ambition and talent, would become one of the most influential (and controversial) figures of the 20th century, creating revolutionary styles for women and building an international empire-overcoming tragedies, setbacks and the choices forced by world [Url removed]ife didn't please me, so I created my life. -Gabrielle Coco ChanelWomen the world over, regardless of language, age, or background, recognize this symbol: two interlocking C's, representing a legacy that irrevocably changed women's fashion. The Chanel Suit. The Chanel bag. The little black dress. The alluring fragrance of Chanel No. 5. But who is the woman who would become known simply as Coco Born into rural poverty, Gabrielle Chanel and her siblings are shipped off to a convent orphanage after their seamstress mother dies. Very little is expected of a skinny orphan from the countryside, but the sisters nurture Gabrielle's exceptional sewing skills and her childhood willfulness transforms into a woman's fierce determination to create a life better than her mother's drudgery and early death. A side business decorating hats and a less-than-respectable income singing in taverns as Coco attract a gentleman who offers a way into new and more glamorous social circles. Inspired by luxury and decadence of this new world, freed from financial worries, Coco finds the spark to her creativity. When the passionate love affair that will define her life brings her to Paris, Coco Chanel knows she has found her calling. Rejecting the corseted silhouette and fussy frills of the past, her sleek, minimalist styles project youthful ease and confidence to suit the emerging modern woman of the 1920s. As Coco's reputation spreads, her business as a couturier grows in leaps and bounds. But while Coco moves in rarefied society circles and bohemian salons, her fame, success and increasing fortune can't save her from tragedy and heartbreak. And when Paris falls into the nightmare of war and occupation, Coco is forced to make choices that will define the rest of her life. An enthralling and insightful account of an extraordinary life, Mademoiselle Chanel reveals the inner life of a woman of staggering ambition-who transformed the world around her with the strength, passion and artistic vision that became her trademark.
