She had a brief career as a singer before opening her first clothes shop in 1910. In the 1920s, she launched her first perfume and introduced the Chanel suit and the little black dress. Her design aesthetic was realized in jewelry, handbags, and fragrance. Her signature scent, Chanel No. 5 has become an iconic product.
