“If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent them from growing.”
~ Coco Chanel
Profile of author
Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel (August 19, 1883 – January 10, 1971) – was a pioneering French fashion designer whose modernist philosophy, menswear-inspired fashions, and pursuit of expensive simplicity made her an important figure in 20th-century fashion. She was the founder of the famous fashion brand, Chanel. Her extraordinary influence on haute couture was such that she was the only person in the field to be named on Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people of the 20th century.
I want to update the profile and add … According to Wikipedia: “Chanel’s highly competitive, opportunistic personality led her to make questionable life choices which have generated controversy around her reputation, particularly her behavior during the German occupation of France in World War II.”
