Today, we raise a glass to Coco Chanel, the French fashion designer behind the iconic brand Chanel, who was born 133 years ago.

Coco Chanel is the world’s greatest and most influential fashion designer. She is a French designer who is not only recognized for her fashion line, but also for her little black dresses and suits, her trademark perfume and her expensive simplicity in design. Coco Chanel’s designs are timeless and classic and are still popular today, and will be popular for years to come. She is the founder of the famous company, Chanel, which now sells clothing, fine jewelry, perfume, accessories and cosmetics.

Despite the designer’s passing in 1971, the fashion label has continued to thrive, particularly in the Hollywood scene. Stars such as Lily Collins and Kate Hudson have repeatedly worn the designs, both in head-to-toe outfits and style staples like handbags and espadrille sneakers.
