A beautifully illustrated picture book biography of Coco Chanel

"The line-drawn illustrations, often resembling fashion sketches, use white space and pops of color to maximum effect...the book’s simple elegance is perfectly suited to the story of Coco and her iconic black dress."—Booklist

"Hurry up! You may only go to bed when all the sheets are ironed." Little Coco grew up in an orphanage and had to work hard for a living, sewing and embroidering. Until her eighteenth birthday, that is... Coco knew one thing for sure: she would never, never be poor again.

Coco Chanel (1883–1971) was a famous French fashion designer. Born into a poor family, strictly brought up in an orphanage, influenced by the style of wealthy suitors, she remained faithful throughout her life to a luxurious simplicity, which has produced memorable style icons like the little black dress and perfume Chanel No. 5.
