Living with Coco Chanel
Join author Caroline Young for a discussion of her book Living with Coco Chanel, exploring how the homes and landscapes of Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel shaped her groundbreaking designs. From her childhood at the convent at Aubazine to her boutique and apartment on Rue Cambon in Paris and her villa, La Pausa, on the French Riviera, Chanel’s style was inspired and influenced by her environment. As she found fame, love, and success, she used the memories of her past to create such sensations as the tweed jacket and the little black dress.
