Transcript of The timeline of Coco Chanel

The Timeline of Coco Chanel (1883-1971) France was occupied by Germany during WWII. 1940 Coco Chanel was born in France and spent most of her life there. She was also accused of being linked to German intelligence operations and a spy for the Nazis. 1850 The First National Woman's Convention (U.S) is held in Worcester, Massachusetts. The convention, after much discussion, passed a resolution that stated: "Women are clearly entitled to the right of suffrage, and to equality before the law, without distinction of sex or color." Coco Chanel's clothing designs and the way she revolutionized woman's fashion gave woman more freedom and gave them a small amount of liberation. 1929 Italy and the Vatican signed the Lateran Treaty. The Lateran Treaty was a mutual agreement between Italy and the Vatican. The agreement was if the Vatican recognized Italy as a state with Rome as its capital, then Italy would establish Roman Catholicism as the state religion of Italy. When Coco Chanel was a young girl her mother died of bronchitis; therefore she was sent by her father to stay at a Catholic orphanage for poor and abandoned. Later, when she was too old to stay at the orphanage she was sent to live in a boarding house set aside for Catholic girls. 1930 The first FIFA World Cup was held in Uruguay. Most of Coco Chanel's designs had more of a sporty look and was made of a jersey material, which was much more comfortable than what women wore those days. 1898 "A Trip to Coontown" was the first musical comedy entirely produced and performed by African Americans in a Broadway theater. The Broadway musical "Coco" (which was based on the life of Coco Chanel) was played from December 18, 1969 to October 3, 1970. The first electric sewing machine was developed by Singer Sewing Co. 1889 Coco Chanel learned to sew when she was younger from the nuns at her orphanage. Her first job was as a seamstress, which eventually led her to the realization that she wanted to design clothing.
