Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel, born Gabriel Chanel, could be considered a "leading lady"' when it comes to twenties fashion.  The designs she created resembled the silhouettes of flapper fashion.  Other fashion designers at the time were proclaimed outdated because of their clothing collection with fashion from th 1910's.

Coco Chanel not only embraced flapper in her clothing collection, but in her personal fashion as well.  Coco could be caught wearing colors that were standard for  a flapper; beige, cream, sand, navy, black and sand.  These colors  were often worn on jersey fabric dresses and skirts.
