When I was trawling through youtube this afternoon, I found these vintage Chanel fashion shows..
Vintage Chanel Fashion Shows
The shows range from the 30s to 80s. it is so interesting to see the changes in fashion. A lot of the early ones seem to be skirt suits and dresses etc and later on you see more pants/trousers and clothes typical of each era.
This is an interesting talk from Justine Picardie who wrote a biography on Coco Chanel:
Chanel is something I dream of wearing. The clothes, shoes, bags, everything is beautiful and so well made and designed. I love Chanel perfume, in particular Chanel No 19 (which is also my mums favourite perfume!).
