COCOCANEL

When you think of big names in fashion, what's one of the first brand names you think of? How about popular perfume brands? It's possible you might think of the same name for both--Chanel. This is the name of the ambitious French woman Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel.
Coco Chanel lost both her parents at a young age and grew up without much money. However, she became one of the most important and wealthy female designers of our time. A possible key to Chanel's amazing business success was her intelligent and creative use of basic business techniques: expansion, diversification, and marketing.

Chanel's first business, in 1909, was a hat shop in Paris. It was a very successful venture, and Chanel soon began making clothes for women that changed women's fashions forever. She designed affordable, practical, and comfortable clothes. She modeled many of her fashions on men's sport clothes; she made wearing pants a fashionable thing for women to do. Women were crazy about her clothes!

Chanel's next step was to expand her stores. In 1914, a rich boyfriend financed the next two clothing stores she opened in France. During the 1920s, her business continued to grow and be profitable and she decided to diversify her product line. In 1923, she took a risk and launched a perfume, Chanel No. 5. It was the first perfume to have a designer name. Chanel No. 5 is still the company's flagship product today.

During World War I and World War II, Chanel's stores closed or had big financial losses. However, she was able to turn her business around in 1954 by designing new clothes based on her 1930s clothing styles. As her business rebounded, Chanel's fashions became very popular again-- this time in Europe and the United States, especially with movie stars in Hollywood. Her reputation was safe once again. Chanel understood very well how to package and market her products. Today, the Chanel double "C" logo is on a variety of quality products in shops throughout the world.

Coco Chanel died in 1971, but she will always be remembered as a great businesswoman, a talented designer, and the first woman to create a world-famous brand name.
