I was born on August 19th 1883 in a poor house in France where my mother worked and died when I was only six, leaving me with my father and other 4 sisters and brothers abandoned and to be cared by relatives.

In 1905 I started a brief career as a Café singer in Paris, became the mistress of a wealthy military officer and then of an English industrialist. With their help I was able to open a millinery shop, and the two men also helped me by introducing customers from society with the result that my simple hats became very popular.

Eventually I became one of the premier fashion designers in Paris to include themes such as simple suits and dresses, womenÂ’s trousers, costume jewellery, perfume and textiles.

My casual look was in sharp contrast to the corset fashions popular in the previous decades. WHO AM I?
