Beading on Silk - Winter Vintage Fabric Size: 230 x 580
“Coco” Chanel (1883 – 1971). Chanel was a French fashion designer and businesswoman who lived in the same period as my grandmother. She became famous for her sporty, casual chic replacing the corseted restricted silhouette of the Victorian era. Her trademark suits and little black dresses, along with her perfume brought her fame. I have used vintage fabrics and beading to construct this work. I won the pearls in a writing competition in the early eighties.
