Description

Discover the life, work and legacy of Coco Chanel in this snappy and stylish biography about artistic spirit, influence and attitude.

Chanel’s ethos captured the imagination of post-war women, releasing them from the corseted silhouette and changing what we wore forever. But how did Chanel think? How did her experiences shape her creative career? And how was her no-holds-barred attitude reflected in her work? What Coco Chanel Can Teach You About Fashion breaks down Chanel's life and work into memorable mantras that epitomise her ground-breaking perspective – including Poverty Can Be Luxury, Rebel Against Your Rivals, Find Your Spirit Animal and Twist Textile Traditions. This book uncovers Chanel's creative approach, her inspirations, her business acumen and the details that make her designs so timeless.

With pithy, illuminating text and inspirational photographs, learn something from Chanel and apply it to your own life, creativity and style. These are the things that really define what it means to be Chanel. 

Small and beautifully formed – if you like this, What Alexander McQueen Can Teach You About Fashion is also available.
