Born on July 11, 1934, in Italy, Giorgio Armani is well known by everybody as THE iconic clothing designer who has expanded his empire to include restaurants and hotels.
His popularity skyrocketed in America in the 1980s when his men’s ‘power suits’ appeared frequently on the television series Miami Vice and in the 1980 film American Gigolo, which starred Richard Gere in Armani’s signature garb.
By the end of the 1990s, Armani had over 2,000 stores worldwide and an annual sales of roughly $2 billion.
His company continued to add to its product offerings, expanding into the home goods market, book publishing and even into the flowers. Finally in 2005, Armani debuted his first haute couture line, giving to this Empire a never ending reputation.
