Did you know? : Chanel Flower

Hello hello,

Yes... you must have expected this, a typical generic post about Chanel but hear me out, take a chance.
Tell me, don't google your way out of this! What is the white signature flower that is seen on [Chanel slippers, cardigans, attached as an accessory to dress up another accessory] called?

Do you remember the day when you realized that, that white flower wasn't a rose? Your quick glances over the white flower has registered as the wrong species in your mind.

Here comes the [DID YOU KNOW]

Did you know that the white flower that is now considered as a Chanel signature is actually a white camellia. The white camellias symbolizes love and faithfulness in Asia. Before making the famous white Camellia a Chanel feature, It had great meaning to Gabrielle Chanel. Being her favorite flower, Chanel incorporated it into many of her designs and can be seen widely used in many items, even today. The white camellia isn't just a flower, it has become a revolution, a symbol for woman, purity, beauty, and elegance. The timeless beauty, love and classic flower has truly made an ever lasting impact in the design world. It's as if someone has permanently snapped a photograph of a beautiful Camellia, freezed a moment in time, when the flower blooms at its peak.
For a moment, it takes your breath away.

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”-Gabrielle Chanel 

Like every Designer, inspiration can come from the smallest details in life, the seemingly most unremarkable events or in this case even a flower. Being in design school, I've heard many times over how tacky a flower is, or how making something that is already beautiful more beautiful is ridiculous. You know what I have to say to that? don't listen to any of that, absolutely anything can inspire you as long as you allow it to. The sky isn't the limit.

Good Luck

toodles till later
