A Fashion Quote from Coco Chanel

chanel quote

Coco Chanel, famous French designer, was one of the most important influences of  fashion design. Known for her modern and practical designs, she is credited for the concept of the little black dress during the 1920’s. Her early collections were full of beading and embroidery. She also popularized the wearing of costume  jewelry and stated “It’s disgusting to walk around with millions around the neck because one happens to be rich. I only like fake jewelry…because it’s provocative.”
