ON AUGUST 19, 1883, A BABY GIRL WAS BORN TO A LAUNDRYWOMAN IN SAUMUR, A COMMUNE IN WESTERN FRANCE. HER NAME WAS GABRIELLE. AT 12 YEARS OLD, GABRIELLE’S MOTHER DIED OF TUBERCULOSIS AND THE LITTLE GIRL WAS SENT TO A CONVENT FOR ORPHANS, A BLEAK PERIOD IN HER LIFE. AT 18, GABRIELLE LEFT THE CONVENT AND USED THE SEWING SKILLS SHE GAINED AT THE CONVENT TO WORK AS A SEAMSTRESS AND MOONLIGHTED AS A SINGER AT A CABARET, WHERE SHE WAS KNOWN AS “COCO”.
And thus, the humble beginnings of Gabrielle “Coco” Bonheur Chanel before she catapulted herself to the forefront of global fashion and created a legacy that lives on more than 120 years later as the iconic brand, Chanel.
