  1. After watching the movie with Shirley MacClaine, I fell in love with Coco Chanel…the story of her life and style. I love this challenge and can’t wait to see what comes of it. I am more of a watcher than a doer. Thank you for the eye candy.

  2. Beautiful and timeless, it’s amazing how modern these garments still look today.

  3. I have noticed here and on the website which showcases her collection that many of the dresses I have seen for years are her inspiration. She invented the wheel (so to say) for the modern dress.
