October 15, 2011 - Washington

Karl Lagerfeld has revealed that he thinks Coco Chanel would have hated the work he does as a creative director of Chanel.

The 78-year-old fashion designer also said that he was able to do good work for the fashion house because he was given complete freedom by the owner.

"I have it in my blood. When I was asked to Chanel, it was not trendy. I made something of it because I was given total freedom by the owner," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

"What I do Coco would have hated. It's my job to keep Chanel updated," he added.
