Coco and the Little Black Dress – Book

“I’ll never wear a corset!” exclaims young Coco Chanel while observing the complicated dress routines of Parisian society women. The young designer, who began sewing as an orphan, never likes to play by the rules: She wears pants to ride horses and she prefers simple men’s boater hats to extravagantly impractical ladies’ ones. Yearning for the opposite sex’s sartorial freedom, Coco concocts the little black dress, her answer to trousers, which allow women to leap with ease. Dutch illustrator Annemarie van Haeringen brings the vivacious tomboy Coco to life in this mini-biography through drawings just as elegant as the designer’s famous frocks. The best fashion-steeped picture books for kids, inspire parents, too. Pre-order your copy HERE
