Coco Avant Chanel Filming, With Help From Karl Lagerfeld::

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

Those brilliant words were spoken by Coco Chanel over 40 years ago and they are as true today as they were back then. Coco Chanel is still considered one of Haute Couture’s most iconic figures and now there is set to be a film which will be released in the near future about her life.

The feature length film entitled Coco Avant Chanel (Coco before Chanel) will focus on Coco’s early years in fashion and explore her romances and experiences and will feature archival Chanel dressess. Karl Lagerfeld will be supervising the re-creation of costumes and accessories for the production. Audrey Tatou is set to play the young fashion designer and the film will be directed by acclaimed French director Anne Fontaine.

 The 12-week production started Sept. 15 in Paris. The movie is slated to be released in 2009, and since Warner Bros. is behind the project, expect a full-out, hopefully gratifying, film.
