Many people know that Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel was a prolific French fashion designer and founder of the House of Chanel, who ruled over Parisian haute couture for almost six decades. What, perhaps, they don't know is that she was taught to sew by nuns and started Chanel by making hats; that, in 1935, she was recognized as the world's wealthiest woman; and that she once worked as a singer, famously gaining the nickname "Coco" from one of her songs. This book presents a visual catwalk through her life and work, with an array of facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the genius behind the garments.
