Coco Chanel
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel (1883-1971) was not only the most influential designer of the 20th century, she was one of the most influential women of all time; Australian Financial Review named her one of the top 10 business tycoons of the century.   Ninety years after Coco Chanel advocated that women should be comfortable in their clothes; that they could be casually elegant and sophisticated, her theories remain as the underpinning of current style.  She continues to influence another generation of designers and to guide women through an otherwise expensive and frustrating world of ever-changing fashion.
Chanel decreed that being well-dressed is about timeless style.  To prove that being comfortable in one’s clothing was not a male privilege, Chanel put women in trousers and blazers.  She also pulled out the pearls for daytime dressing and designed and marketed the little black dress (the LBD) into infinity.   Coco Chanel’s maxim that comfort is key, her innate business sense, enviable capacity for work, uncanny ability to predict what would become the next mode, and her single-mindedness of character, assured that she will always stand in fashion history’s spotlight.
History’s most influential designer returns in a spirited historical portrayal.  Through this performance, “Coco” shares the story of her rise to fame, her fashion theories and innovations, and the creation of her most famous fragrance, Chanel No. 5.  She is also candid about competitors and the men in her life.
