In honor of Women's History Month, we take a look at a series of videos that chronicle the lives and careers of the most iconic and successful women in Fashion. From Prada to Diane von Furstenberg, watch the histories of these incredible women, and why we who work in fashion owe them so much.

The set begins with the signature style of the House of Chanel, unparalleled in the world of design. From the iconic tweed to the quilted leather handbag, Chanel has woven its iconic imagery into the fabric of fashion. Coco Chanel changed the face of contemporary sportswear but Karl Lagerfeld has transformed the label into the harbinger of modern, sporty, Parisian style.
