Historians say that it was Louis XIV of France, also known as the Sun King, whom made France the couture capital of the world when he built Versailles and demanded his court to be the most fashionable in the world many centuries ago.
By comparison, Coco Chanel was, arguably, the Louis XIV of the modern age. Now, the House of Chanel is the
authority on tradition, originality and style. Chanel: Collections and Creations
