Why do you remember Coco Chanel today?
Coco Chanel was a pioneering French fashion designer whose modernist
philosophy, menswear-inspired fashions, and pursuit of expensive simplicity
made her an important figure in 20th-century fashion. Her influence on hate
couture was such that she was the only person in the field to be named on
TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people of the 20th century.
