27 Quotes by Coco Chanel to inspire you

Quotes-by-Coco-ChanelToday I offer you some inspirational quotes by Coco Chanel.

Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel, better known as Coco Chanel, was a French fashion designer and businesswoman. She was the founder of the brand that bears the name Chanel and she’s credited with popularizing a sporty, casual chic as the feminine standard of style in the years between the two world wars.

More importantly, she was arguably amongst the most influential people of the 20th century and an icon for women everywhere.

Coco Chanel extended her influence beyond couture clothing, by realizing her aesthetic design in jewellery, handbags, and fragrance too. Her signature perfume, Chanel No. 5, remains an iconic product to this day, and Chanel herself designed her famed interlocked CC monogram, which has been in use since the 1920s.

By any measure, she was a successful designer and businesswoman and it’s always a good idea to listen to what successful people have to say.

So here are 27 quotes by Coco Chanel that I hope you’ll find inspirational. Enjoy them all and please feel free to share them.
