Chanel has always been a favourite of mine. And while I haven't got one piece of the iconic brand in my closet, I have many pieces inspired by Chanel. And inspiration is what fashion is for me. I have learned that even the "big" names don't have merit or value in my fashion world (aka my closet) unless they inspire me.
Even as a young girl, I loved to take the looks of the designers and make them into Barbie clothes and later on my own clothes. My mother taught me to sew and even though I was very much a tomboy, I always loved fashion and love creating something that was expressing me.
