I’m a big fan of Chanel – even as a teenager I’d invest in Chanel-esque tweed jackets that were easily ten years too old for me. Fascinated by the inspirational lady behind the brand, I anxiously watched the film ‘Coco before Chanel’ recently. The boyf was bored senseless but I was glued to the screen.
I’ve been to Paris a few times for work but never had chance to visit the infamous Coco Chanel original workshop at Rue Cambon. An excuse to return if ever I heard one. I’m intrigued by the mirrored staircase which featured in the film. She used to sit and watch her shows from there, too shy to come down for her standing ovation!
