Shadow Spotlight: Coco Chanel

Shadow Spotlight: Coco Chanel

March 13 / 17

Hello! Change of plans for Shadow Spotlight. In honor of Women’s History Month, the spotlight falls on Coco Chanel. The women before us have carved a path in many areas and Chanel carved her path in fashion. She made history in fashion. Chanel continues to this day to inspire what fashion is. Found a short documentary and a two-part 1969 interview with the woman herself. I hope it will give a glimpse of who Coco was as a fashion designer and a woman who wasn’t afraid to put her own stamp in the world.


 

 

 

 

 

 

The interview is in French. All you have to do is click on the cc button on the lower right-hand corner. Then click settings, go to auto-translate, click English and there you go.
