Editor in chief of Harper’s Bazaar Justine Picardie looks at the relationship between the magazine and the legendary French fashion designer and businesswoman Coco Chanel.

Picardie is author of the international bestselling biography, Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life. Picardie interviewed surviving friends, employees and relations to build an authoritative account of the iconic designer who died in 1971. Since its publication in 2010, Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life has become the definitive Chanel biography.

Picardie is author of four books including a memoir, If The Spirit Moves You, and Daphne: A Novel.

This event is one of a series devoted to writers past and present associated with Harper’s Bazaar to mark the 150th anniversary of the magazine.
