International Italian fashion house Armani was founded by Giorgio Armani in 1975. He shot to fame when Richard Gere wore his designs in cult film American Gigolo during the 1980’s, and he is now regarded as one of the most successful designers to ever come out of Italy. The Armani label has now become a veritable fashion powerhouse producing ready-to-wear, haute couture, shoes, jewellery, eye wear and home interiors. Armani is known for its impeccable tailoring, chic muted colour palettes and lavish red carpet looks.
Giorgio Armani continues to build upon the sleek original aesthetic of creating both luxury evening gowns as well as a chic go-to-work wardrobe, Armani now sells in 500 stores worldwide.▼
