Born in the northern Italian town of Piacenza in 1934, Giorgio Armani aspired to a career in medicine and enrolled in the Department of Medicine at the University of Milian but joined the army three years later. Following his stint in the army, Armani found a job as a window dresser at a department store in Milan in 1957. After becoming a seller for the menswear department, Armani began designing menswear of his own; contributing designs to as many as ten manufacturers at a time. After opening a design office in Milan, Armani worked as a freelance designer for a number of fashion houses including Allegri, Bagutta, and Hilton. Armani was quickly recognized by international press following runway shows in Florence. By July of 1975, he founded Giorgio Armani S.p.A. in Milan, with friend Sergio Galeotti and that same year presented his first collection of men’s ready-to-wear under his own name. The Giorgio Armani brand has an incomparable and timeless sense of style. Armani’s vision of the world of creative design is not just about turning heads, but about leaving a lasting impression.
