Where did Coco Chanel get the name Chanel?
Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel- Chanel, is her birth surname but her nickname, "Coco" is what some say that the name comes from one of the songs she used to sing, and Chanel herself said that it was a "shortened version of coquette, the French word for 'kept woman," according to an article in The Atlantic.
In many of her songs during her singing career, she had the words Coco in it. so as some say, her name derived from her song and thus Coco Chanel
The designer Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel had the nickname COCO in her early days of fashion
No. She had a Boy Friend who made her first shop for her.
She adopted the name Coco during a brief career as a cafe and concert singers 1905-1908. First a mistress of a wealthy military officer then of an English industrialist, she drew on the resources of these patrons in setting up a millinery shop in Paris in 1910, expanding to Deauville and Biarritz. The two men also helped her find customers among women of society, and her simple hats became popular.
She probobly;; died of old age. Some websites say she handled her death spending her last moments in the style she had become accustomed to a her opulent private apartment in The Ritz. Also at the age of 88. So old age;; or mysteryously. :)
