“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.

Iconic French fashion designer and business woman, Coco Chanel, is largely remembered for her creative avant-garde style, liberating women from the constraints of the so-called 'corseted silhouette'. But beyond her talents as a fashion designer and fragrance maker, she was one of the most famous and successful businesswomen of her time owing to her fierce determination, ambition and energy. Depicted here on an original page of the French Stock Exchange News from 1926, it is fitting that as a trailblazing businesswoman she sits against a backdrop symbolic of men's domination over the business world.
