Coco, or the Little Black Dress

Nominated for the Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis 2015
Silver Pencil 2014

Gabrielle Chanel grew up in a poor family and on the death of her mother she was sent to work in a convent. The discipline, simple clothing and clean smells would influence her throughout her life.
She found work as a seamstress and started making hats. A string of wealthy boyfriends supported the start of her own business and gave her an appetite for a more masculine style that appealed to the modern woman. From sports clothes and the camellia to la petite robe noire , Chanel is a classic!
