COCO CHANEL: THE LIFE OF A FASHION ICON
24 March - 26 March$180 – $1200
‘A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.’ — Coco Chanel
A brilliant designer and shrewd businesswoman, firebrand Coco Chanel redefined the world of fashion and outfitted a new generation of modern women who were intelligent, ambitious and rebellious. Her iconic little black dress and bouclé jackets and skirts are now classic style staples seen all over the world.
Acclaimed Belgian-Colombian choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s original ballet Coco Chanel: the Life of a Fashion Icon, created for Hong Kong Ballet, celebrates the complex life of the 20th century’s most intriguing designer with an original score by Peter Salem, elegant sets and costumes by the award-winning Jerome Kaplan and artistic collaboration by Nancy Meckler. This creative dream team is the force behind Dutch National Ballet’s Frida, based on the life of renowned artist Frida Kahlo.
The world premiere of Coco Chanel promises to be an international sensation, chronicling an almost mythical rags to riches story. Not without her share of controversy, Chanel launched a powerful fashion empire, and more than a century later, her unforgettable legacy continues to inspire.
