This is the wonderful story of the rags-to-riches story of Coco Chanel, played out in a wonderful picture-book biography filled with style and spirit just like its heroine, Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel.
Orphaned at a young age, Coco stubbornly believed that she was as good as the rich girls of Paris. Tapping into her creativity and her sewing skills, she began making clothes she could afford -- and soon a new generation of independent working women craved her sleek, comfortable, and practical designs. An icon of fashion and culture, Coco Chanel continues to inspire young readers, showing how far one can get with spirit, spunk and determination.
