Not everyday do we get to meet such woman. Coco Chanel. That’s a name the fashion industry and the rest of the world still goes by. She is an inspiration for those who believe in the rags to riches stories. Her name inspires perfumes and some of them are the most expensive in the world. She has a perfume to her name Chanel No. 5 and it is still the most expensive perfume and runs in limited editions.
Coco was born in 19 August 1883 to an unmarried mother and a street vendor father. She spent her early life in an orphanage after her mother died. The girl turned out to be dynamic and fierce. She worked as a singer in bars and clubs. She also sold hats in a small shop in Paris and went on to become the diva she was.
The world remains enamored of her charm and sense of business. Here are some statements made by her. On her 133th birth anniversary, we wish to pay tribute to her through her daring and courageous fight that brought her success. The world raises a toast to such women.
