This event is sold out
Coco Chanel created the way we look now – conjuring up the little black dress, bobbed hair, trousers for women, best-selling perfumes and the most successful fashion brand of all time. But she also invented herself, fashioning the myth of her own life. This illustrated talk, based on the acclaimed, bestselling biography, brings the mysterious Gabrielle Chanel out of hiding, unpicking the seams between truth and legend. Author Justine Picardie is former Editor in Chief for Harper’s Bazaar.
‘Gripping… In the deftest prose, Picardie plots one of the most extraordinary lives of the 20th Century.’ Mail on Sunday
