When most people hear Chanel, they think of designer hand bags that cost more than a house, but Chanel, the person, I so much more than her designs. Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel was an orphan who grew to love creating her own designs. She is known for having a classic string of pearls around her neck and a simple black hat on her head. She started making her own clothes because she felt that women were restricted in there choice of dress, and she often wore mens' trousers because they allowed her more freedom. She is one of the first women to pave her own way in the fashion world. Her pieces are not only a display of Chanel's creativity, but they inspire many to express themselves despite the pressures of society.
