Lalluredune femme: Coco Chanels Fashionable World
Weiran Liu
Prof. Patrick Lobert, Faculty Mentor

My project is going to discuss the brand Chanel and the legendary history of the designer, Coco Chanel. There will be four parts to this project beginning with an introduction of Coco Chanel and her brand. The second part is Cocos youth and young career life. This part is about her childhood and what leads her to haute couture. There will also be some short stories about Cocos affairs with Arthur Capel and Etienne Balsan, two young men who offered Coco both love and dreams. The third part is about why Coco left France during WWII and her interaction with German Nazis. Coco eventually returned to France with a marvelous success that strengthened the brand Chanel and broadened the prominence of Chanel. The last part of my project deals with Chanels current influence on the world of fashion helping people around the world to know more about France and the French spirit too.
