Ok, so let’s start from the basics.
What inspires me?
I can feel inspired in many ways, sometimes is a story, feelings or a person that is different and makes changes, two of these things I found in the story of Coco Chanel.
The story of an strong and ambitious woman which wasn’t afraid to prove that is OK being different. She changed the whole vision of fashion womenswear in a ” men’s world” . The world has evolved so much since then but still is not that easy to make it alone.
After watching the movie Coco Avant Chanel, my interest in researching about her life grew stronger and the thing that kept me reading was her strength, things that I felt identified with and the fact that she didn’t have to many facilities to reach a high level that she even wasn’t aware of. Her idea of simplicity and comfort in clothing was something new in fashion and it didn’t took a lot of time to settle a logical statement in clothing.
So now when I look at CHANEL, I have a better knowledge of the style and the luxury level that Coco Chanel left behind.
Interesting fact : She was born in the same day as me, 19 august. 😀 No wonder I felt identified in many ways.
I really recommend this movie to everyone interested! French is such a beautiful language!
