Her great ambitions and innovation helped her, as she began a small millinery shop as one of her first investments. She did not stop there as she proceeded and built a large fashion house with branches across Europe, for example in Paris and London. Her earlier career in cloth fashion was her boutique, where she could sell casual clothes used during leisure times and for sporting activities. She also sold sweaters and jackets. During the twentieth century, social, cultural and historical events and practices had a lot of impact on fashion and design. The designers could easily access the styles, desired designs, and the required materials. The good thing was that during the time, communication and travel across continents had been eased and one could travel across the continents. Fashions across many regions were designed in accordance to the tradition and believes, for example in America during the early years of republic.

It was during these moments of fashion design revolution that Gabrielle Chanel Coco emerged; her life is funny in the way she could live in an image of herself.
