Opened the House of Chanel in 1910, by 1916 she employed 300 people dedicated to creating simple feminine clothing & hats.

Since 1983, Chanel has been designed by Karl Lagerfeld.
Coco Chanel's business started with her hats and was financed by her lovers, Etienne Balsan and Boy Capel.  
Closed her couture house in 1939 at the outbreak of world war 2 saying "This is no time for fashion". Due to having had an affair with a Nazi officer during the war, she was suspected of collaborating with the German enemy and was arrested at the end of the war.  No charges were brought against her and she spent the following years in obscurity in Swtzerland. She returned to couture design in 1954 at the age of 71.
Brought up in an orphanage from the age of 12 following the death of her mother.  She lived there with her 2 sisters until she was 18 and it was here that she learned how to sew.

She was given the name Coco by her audience when she worked, briefly, as a singer.  Famous for her renditions of  'Ko Ko Ri Ko' and 'Qui qu'a vu Coco?' (a ditty about a lost dog) - Gabrielle became Coco, although she herself denied this story and claimed the nickname came from her father as he never liked the name Gabrielle.
