3 Weeks With Coco Chanel – Photography Exhibition

3 Weeks With Coco Chanel – Photography Exhibition









For anyone who has ever worn a dress (or appreciated how it looks on a woman), know that the item of clothing has probably been influenced somewhere along the line by the French fashionista, Coco Chanel. Coco’s skill with fabric and unashamed originality revolutionised the fashion world of the twentieth century and she was often the topic of conversation in aristocratic circles.

Today, Chanel still manages to be on the lips of the upwardly mobile and for the next 4 weeks, Queens Plaza is proud to present “Three Weeks With Coco Chanel”; an exhibition of photographic works by Douglass Kirkland.

Kirkland was a renowned Hollywood photographer, working with the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Judy Garland. An assignment in 1962 for Look magazine brought him to Paris, and while he was there, he stayed with Chanel for twenty-one days. During this time Kirkland was able to take many candid pictures of the fashion icon, both in her public and private lives.

The exhibition is running until the 13th of December at Queens Plaza, which is located in the heart of the city on the corner of Edward and Adelaide streets. These timeless moments that Kirkland has captured on film are not to be missed.
