About Sophie d'Antignac Coy/Shonnard

Madame Sophie Shonnard (Sophie d'Antignac Meldrim Coy Shonnard) (1887-1980) retired from the world's most fashionable circles of Europe and New York City to reside in the restored Waring House on the southwest side of Bull Street on Chippewa Square . Source: The Squares: An Introduction to Savannah by Chan Sieg.

Mrs. Shonnard was a partner in the New York City fashion boutique, Chez Ninon, the private, custom dress shop that produced the Chanel-designed, strawberry bouclé 2-piece suit worn by Jacqueline Kennedy in Dallas when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, November 22, 1963. Authorized Chanel designs were produced under the label Chez Ninon for society's most fashionable and prominent women in the United States, especially those who were eager to be politically correct in wearing American-made apparel.

Mrs. Shonnard is daughter to Judge P.W. Meldrim and his wife Frances Casey Meldrim, whose home in Savannah is the now-famous Green-Meldrim House, a National Historic Landmark on Madison Square.
