The story

Gabrielle Chanel was born in Saumur in 1883. She opened her own milliner's with the help of her lover Arthur 'Boy' Capel and the support of Etienne Balsan. This venture met with unexpected success and Gabrielle Chanel took her love of dressmaking a step further, opening more shops and embarking upon a career making clothes as well. She transformed women's clothing by doing away with corsets to make way for dresses and suits. She also created the eternal Chanel No 5 fragrance, as well as a line of jewelry. Breaking away from the period's trends, she used jersey fabric for her creations.
