Initially my house,
We will be watching 'Coco before Chanel' which is in French and subtitled. Come to my house for 7.30, we'll start the film promptly. I'll supply some refreshments.
"Orphaned at a young age, Coco Chanel was raised in a convent school, where she learned to embroider and sew. She began singing in backstreet cafes and bars, where she attracted the attention of Etienne Balsan, a rich gentleman who immediately became intrigued by her. Swept up in her rich lover's world, Coco soon drew the eyes of society towards her with her unique, elegant style in a time of flamboyance and excess. Just as controversial was the love affair in which she became embroiled, which shattered the conventions of the society in which she lived".
