Answer: The iconic French fashion designer “Coco” Chanel is one of the most significant designers in the fashion industry. She was the founder and namesake of the Chanel brand.
The concept of “Little Black Dress” is often attributed to Chanel as she took a color most associated with mourning and popularized it for evening wear, stressing how chic the color looked in many of her designs. Chanel herself vowed that in 1920, while observing an audience at the opera, she would dress all women in black. She is the only fashion designer listed on TIME magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century.

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.
In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.
