“Elegance is not about being noticed, it’s about being remembered.” –Giorgio Armani
Born in Piacenza, in northern Italy in 1934, Giorgio Armani started his career in fashion as a window dresser for the Rinascente, a famous department store in Milan. He was hired by Nino Cerruti as a fashion designer after finishing his military service and dropping out of college.
He launched his business Giorgio Armani S.p.A (menswear) with his friend and business partner, Sergio Galeotti, in 1975. Armani is famous for his innovative designs. The production of Armani’s luxury clothing soon expanded to the United States and other countries.
