Sorry, this course is full.
Take a look at Fashion and Feminism in the 20th century, through the lens of the legendary Coco Chanel. Her style and fame matched the Modernist innovators of her time. She liberated women from the prison of corsets and created a coolly spare new concept of elegance. Learn about her place in the pulse of history, her role as the lover of an SS officer in Hitler's Germany, her portrait in troubling contradictions. Tea and scones included.
