Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel was the couturiere extraordinaire for most of the twentieth century. Attractive, ambitious, and a genius of self-invention, she became one of the first couturiers to be celebrated as much for her glamorous persona as for her impeccable designs. Raised in an orphanage and virtually self-taught, Chanel, starting from a small millinery shop, quickly built a major fashion house, with branches in Paris, Deauville, Biarritz, and London.
