To what extent a casual encounter or usual acquaintance can determine a human destiny? Especially when it comes to the unusual fate of Coco Chanel? From the orphanage in Aubazine through the Palace of Westminster to the workshop on "Cambon" and the world fame, life time of the legendary designer was influenced by the active, sometimes crucial presence and cooperation with a gallery of more or less authoritative personalities, who were more or less close to her heart. Igor Stravinsky, Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna, the granddaughter of Alexander II, Sergei Diaghilev, Luchino Visconti, Romy Schneider were part of her encirclement. Chanel's relationships with them - sometimes intimate, sometimes business and most often both, marked not only the stages of her rise, but also outlined the multifaceted and full-blooded portrait of this talented, ambitious, uncompromising at times, but always incredibly fascinating woman.
