International Women’s Day: Revolution, Fashion & the original #girlboss

The Revolutionary Spirit that became Chanel

An Icon behind the Fashion House whose life perfectly depicts this year’s message “Be Bold for Change.”

Background: Gabrielle Chanel


Why Gabrielle this International Women’s Day?

She dared … to emancipate women from social restrictions at the time
freeing women from corsets & adopting men’s designs 

She created…  freedom from restrictive impractical clothing for men’s gazes, gone were the hourglasses,  replaced with sleek elegant lines

​Practicality became paramount

In a world…  where she was disadvantaged by her sex & background, she was the rebellious woman who built a fashion house


Inside Chanel:


“My life didn’t please me so I created my life”
