Mademoiselle Chanel, 2015 book

Mademoiselle Chanel


By C.W. Gortner

This novel imagines the life of Coco Chanel, based on her actual biography. Born into poverty, and sent to an orphanage after her mother's death, Gabrielle Chanel later uses her skills as a seamstress and her newfound connections to the wealthy to blaze a path as a fashion icon. She redefines style in 1920s Paris, rejecting the rigid, corseted styles of her youth for a more casual, minimal, sleek look for the modern woman. Her dazzling rags-to-riches story is full of heartbreak and hope.
