Coco Chanel embroidery

Good morning

Whilst doing research I came across an evening gown made by the House of Chanel in about 1922.

I love looking at embroidery and beading and admire and appreciate the time and patience it would have taken to produce such a work of art.

Coco Chanel happens to be an icon of mine and I adore her perfume Chanel No 5, which my husband and friends will bare testament to.

So today I am going to be doing some sample embroidery and dream of one day having a dress like this!

 
Ankle length black silk georgette evening dress, embroidered with golden beagle thread and bugle beads.  The Russian House of Kitmir embroidered exclusively for Chanel.  This dress resides in the Londons V&A..... At the moment it is in storage there.

 
Coco Chanel born Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel 19 August 1883 - 10 January 1971.
 
A girl should be two things:
classy and fabulous!
 
CoCo Chanel....
