Coco Chanel, A Legend on and off the Streets

Coco Chanel is known as one of the most influential designers of all time.  Her designs and label has endured the test of time.  How does a designer end up being so influential that her, or his, logo ends up permanently decorating the streets of a major European city?  They do this by understanding what is going on around them, by listening to the needs of the people who will wear their clothes, by staying true to their vision.  Coco Chanel revolutionized the female fashion industry, and impacted many lives in the process.  Her legacy is so great, that her logo resides on the lamposts lining the streets of London and her label remains one of the most sought after.

“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.” -Coco Chanel
