She is a talented woman, who knew how to impose her style and her vision of things, at a time when women did not have much influence in society. It was she who offered the little black dress a place of choice in the dressing room of women, while at the time, black was reserved mainly for periods of mourning.

Like her, “Coco Mademoiselle” frees herself from codes dictated to impose her own. If the composition of “Coco Mademoiselle” is daring, it is nevertheless that of a free woman, values still dear to the hearts of women of the 21st century.
