Happy Birthday, Coco CHANEL!

Coco Chanel is the epitome of style, fashion, and attitude. She taught women everywhere to dress well and project beauty, but most importantly, she taught women about the importance of self-confidence. To her, your outlook on life and the energy you radiated was more alluring than any garment you could buy. Here, some of our favourite quotes by the late, great CHANEL:

Coco Chanel, couturičre française. Paris, 1936. LIP-6958-102

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”

“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”

“I am not young but I feel young. The day I feel old, I will go to bed and stay there. J’aime la vie! I feel that to live is a wonderful thing.”
