Francoise Hardy ❤
Original Style Icon 💥
French folk singer Francois Hardy was best known for her talent, beauty & style in the 1960s and early 70's.
As a child she was painfully shy and also had a contentious relationship with her father. On one of her birthdays he had given her a guitar. Not recognizing it until years later, this was the gift that opened her up to the soul rendering quality of music. She was able to escape into the notes and express herself in a way that she never could before.
In 1961 at 17 years old she signed with her 1st record label and by 1962 she had made her 1st record and became an instant success by selling over one million copies.
Francoise's original sound and style attracted famous parisian designers to work with her. She had become a great muse for spanish designer Paco Rabon.
Today's top fashion houses continue to use Francios Hardy as an inspirational icon for their current collections. 💋
