~Wear The Fantasy ~

One of my favorite real life characters in history is Coco Chanel
Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel (19 August 1883 – 10 January 1971)
She indeed was a pioneering French fashion designer whose modernist philosophy, menswear-inspired fashions, and pursuit of expensive simplicity made her an important figure in 20th-century fashion. Her extraordinary influence on haute couture was such that she was the only person in the field to be named on TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people of the 20th century.
The House of Chanel represent Class, Style,Grace and Pure Original Design to me ..
Be it the little black dress , The Opera Length Pearls , The darling box suits, the frills on the gowns or the sleek evening wear ... The magic .. Ah The Fragrance ..
Till this day I wear crystal by Chanel all summer long and number 5 still on special occasions .
*grins* I also wear Dior ... but that's another blog ....
So When I heard about ... The BOSL tribute to Coco Chanel
I was quite interested as Two of my all time favorite designers on The Grid
were making creations . I shall start with dear Raven Pennyfeather who proudly presents Coco, a tribute to Coco Chanel, a virtual reproduction of a dress designed and made by Coco Chanel. In 1937, when the dress was debuted, Chanel was at the height of her success in Paris. It turned out this would be one of her last collections before closing down her shops in 1939 as World War II loomed and the gravity of the world situation overwhelmed the minds of many.
This is gown is quite special , Ms Raven's signature detail to lace and textures and style is yes a fine tribute to Ms Chanel, but what takes it over the top for humble me is it takes a true artist to not only pay homage and respect with the extra added details through their own labor and hearts, Some most special designers are able to wrap them arms around any inspired design and still make it their own ..
These Two Ladies of design are quite remarkable at doing this .. They do it time and time again !!!
Stunning and I look forward to wearing this gown with my Dear companion out dancing very soon .....the feeling and remarkable design are impeccable !!!
In October Breezy shall be in second life for two years .. I must type something at this time ..
People come into world for what ever reasons . Some also leave for many reasons .
I would like to thank Miss Raven and dear Miss Harper for always be most kind to me and yes caring and excepting me and my silly ways but most of all inspiring Breezy to explore and be herself ..
You see what their own determinations (with heart) reinforces to Breezy is that indeed we each can put on an outfit (so to speak) ! But some really can create from scratch amazing things , some can create a build, or design, perhaps write a story or create something special .. The point being really each one of we has a gift .... But remember something .. in anything one does .. Don't rush through it .. take and make the time to make it your own ..
Ms Coco Chanel should really be quite an inspiration to so many of we
“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”
“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”

Coco Chanel

Ah the next designer .. grins .. let me quote her here ...to give you a taste of the way she does things ..
The Art of Coco Chanel
"Today Tres beau was given the honor of participating in the BOSL tribute to Coco Chanel
Coco Chanel is a legend in design, to create designs in her style was a challenge and a pleasure,

I hope you like them"
Kimmera Madison

Indeed the designer is Ms Kimmera Madison ,of Tres Beau. Breezy has worn her designs for almost two years ..She was the first gown I ever bought on the grid ..
I was crushed when she took a wee ((well deserved )) break but she has been back
and she specializes in Wedding gowns ( with 24 amazing styles )
She has created for second life some of the most original speciality gowns on the grid and her designs of the 20's to 60's to today's style are just gorgeous ... So Breezy did jump for this fun and sassy design of Frolic !!
“Success is often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable.”
“How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.”
Coco Chanel

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
"The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”

Coco Chanel
I dedicate this song to all the wonderful Ladies of Design and Ms Coco Chanel !
for with out each of their own imaginations .. smiles
There would be noo Fantasy to wear ......
