- Fashion is ever-changing, influenced by the key designers that capture a moment in history; and Coco Chanel is arguably the most significant influence on women’s fashion in the twentieth century. Coco Chanel: The Illustrated World of a Fashion Icon is a compilation of Megan Hess’ stunning illustrations of the 100 most quintessential moments through Chanel’s history, from Coco’s incredible life, to the impact of Karl Lagerfeld and the incredible items that have become fashion icons – the little black dress, the luxurious bags and accessories, glamorous jewellery and of course the renowned Chanel No 5 perfume.
- Interspersed with historical anecdotes and famous quotes from Coco herself, Karl Lagerfeld and other key fashion icons of the era, this book is an elegant and immersive introduction to the moments that shaped Coco and the iconic Chanel brand – and how fashion, in turn, shaped their lives.

“I love this book as much as I love all other books by Megan Hess. She is beyond talented at illustrating and putting images/commentary in a way that is pleasing to see. I have to admit that I never read Chanel’s biography, so I definitely learned a lot about her from this book. But even if you’ve read every book on Chanel, this is a unique and fresh way to learn even more about the fashion icon and see her life through whimsical illustration.” By WithBowsOnTop
“When finishing this book I thought “is it about Chanel or the illustrator?”. After mulling it over I came to the conclusion that it was excellent. The author/illustrator gave highlight info about Chanel and surrounded it with lovely illustrations; even though I’ve read all I can find about Chanel I came away with the desire to delve deeper into her life. So kudos to the author for making me want more. Excellent book.” By Deck Distractions
