Coco Before Chanel

imagesTelling the story from her very humble beginnings to the heights of society. This is the fascinating story of Gabrielle Chanel before she became the legendary couturier and symbol of success, freedom and style.
Coco was orphaned at a young age and was raised in a convent school. Whilst she was there she learned to embroider and sew. She soon became bored and dissatisfied with the living and the little she earnt as a seamstress. So she began singing in back street cafés and bars. It was here that she attracted the attention of Étienne Balsan, a rich gentleman who immediately became intrigued by the stubborn, striking young ingénue.
Swept up in her rich lover’s world, Coco soon drew the eyes of society towards her with her unique, elegant style in a time of flamboyance and excess. Just as controversial was the passionate love affair in which she became embroiled which shattered the conventions of her society – a love so dangerous and forbidden it threatened to destroy her.
Great film!
