100 years of the bob: Flappers, Twiggy, Katie Holmes, and now Jessica Alba, it's the style that has transcended time
COCO CHANEL had a brief career on stage in the early 20th century, but will always be known for her fashion designs and the line of clothing and perfume that carries her name. By 1920, the French designer had introduced her “chemise,” the simple, short, and loose dress that allowed flappers the freedom of movement to dance the night away.
The French designer, Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel was a major influence in 1920s fashion. "A girl," she said, "should be two things; classy and fabulous. Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."
