Coco Chanel: timeless remarks about fashion
She invented the classic look, the slick elegance which was later adopted by American business women. Coco Chanel believed in an unmistakable look. This look is not subject to eccentricity and fashion. This look is flattering woman and is easy to wear.
“I hate the old little girls,” said Chanel about women wearing miniskirts. She herself was creating her designs for women, not teenagers. Coco ridiculed the idea of a woman who tries to compete with young girls, using their weapons.
“Haute couture is finished because it’s in the hands of men who don’t like women and can only think of ridiculing women.”
“Men dress like women, women like men, and no one is happy with what he or she has,” said Chanel in her seventies. The biggest mistake for a woman, according to Chanel, is in trying to change herself. Because the real happiness is in not changing.
Natalie Massenet - Internet Entrepreneur
Several women named her their role model. Natalie Massenet, the founder of U. K. based Net-a-Porter.com, the luxury fashion e-trader is certainly a very good example of a business woman and internet entrepreneur.
Natalie Massenet was an editor of Women’s Wear Daily in U. S. before moving to London in 1986, where she joined Tatler. "When I wrote an article telling people to buy something, I always wondered how many of them actually went out and bought it." Now she knows it well. In 2007, Net-a-Porter had 300,000 customers with extra 1,500 coming every month.
Her inspiration came when she left Tatler in 1998 and started working as a freelancer. Natalie went online doing a research, and understood where the weak points of the internet were. The internet community at that time was dominated by men, and there were only few American fashion brands offered online, which were not available for shipment outside the U. S. Net-a-Porter was founded to cover the market gap which existed both online and offline.
"It was an obvious problem in the fashion industry. All the various media were telling women about what this season’s look is but when it came to distribution, not everyone can get to a designer’s boutique. Even those who do live in a major city don’t always have the time to go out shopping, much as they’d love to. So, Net-a-Porter was formed because the media was creating the thirst for designer clothing that we didn’t think was being met."
The team of Net-a-Porter was an all-women team, and they created the service based on their vision of how they wanted it to be. The initial website offered 35 top fashion brands.
The website Net-a-Porter is targeting an international audience. The website offers the next season fashion instead of the traditional web approach of offering discount fashion articles. The business concept is very straight-forward: it appeals to a consumer who is ready to pay good money for luxury. The typical client of Net-a-Porter is a woman who is brand oriented, and doesn’t mind spending money online on a favorite brand. The website offers deliveries with all taxes and duties pre-paid all over the world, and the customer care is said to exceed all expectations.
From the very beginning, however, the idea of Net-a-Porter was not limited with an ambition to sell high fashion items around the world. Net-a-Porter has a look of a luxury online magazine, where visitor can read fashion articles, get fashion tips and see the latest fashion collections online.
Net-a-Porter today has grown from five persons to over 100. It ships its products to more than 50 countries, and the customer only pays the price indicated on the site.

Learn to be ignorant from Elsa Schiaparelli
She was one of the most successful fashion designers of all times. Even though her designs were often compared with the designs of Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli followed her own unique path. Her highly artistic personality, appearance and originality in everything she did, made her the international celebrity, comparable only to the phenomenon of Coco Chanel.
"Shocking Life. The Autobiography of Elsa Schiaparelli" is the source of wisdom and tips for a woman who wants to succeed. One of the most shocking Aha’s of this book is the confession of the author that she decidedly did not know anything about dressmaking. Instinctively she felt that this ignorance would pay off. She had a courage of a person who had nothing to loose, blind and without limit. She had no capital, no superiors (several fashion houses had refused to give her a job). The few principles about clothes she learned, were made by herself.
Although her ignorance looks almost shocking in the highly professional world of today, there is a certain pattern to be seen.
If you are passionate about something – go for it instead of learning it.
