Coco Chanel was born in 1883 and died in 1971, she was raised in an orphanage.
Her first fashion gig was as a milliner.
In the 1920s, she introduced her first perfume. The classic Chanel No. 5 is the best selling in the world, and it is estimated that a bottle is sold every 30 seconds.
Chanel made the little black dress an icon. Up until the 1920s, black was a color that was typically reserved for mourning. It wasn't until 1926, when Coco decided to put a short black dress from her collection in an American Vogue magazine, that wearing black became chic.
The fashion icon was briefly accused of associating with the Nazi party. During World War II, Coco Chanel shut down her shops to observe the grim atmosphere in France at the time. However, her reputation suffered when she reportedly began dating a German military officer and became involved with the Nazi party.
