Gucci of Fashion

Gucci of fashion

Home of Gucci began when founder Guccio Gucci opened up a leather-goods workshop and store in Florence in 1921. Through the sixties and seventies, Gucci was among the world’s premier luxury-goods brands, with loyalists like Katherine Hepburn, Sophistication Kelly, and Jackie O keeping its cachet elevated. However in the late seventies, family in-fighting and unsound business choices set things back substantially, also it wasn't until American designer Tom Ford came onboard in 1990 the luxury brand changed again right into a contemporary energy player, strengthening Gucci like a billion-dollar empire of interlocking Gs. Together with Boss Domenico P Sole, Ford switched the home around inside a relatively small amount of time. His breakout collection was fall 1995, with vibrantly colored fitted sexy dresses over new-disco satin t shirts and stylish-huggers altering the way in which fashion looked overnight and creating him being an worldwide tastemaker—and master from the "sex sells" method of high design. In 1999, the style world was riveted through the fight royale that exploded when French luxury group LVMH attempted to get Gucci. However, rival PPR triumphed, produced the Gucci Group, and purchased Yves Saint Laurent (which Ford created for a couple of years), Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, and much more. But because Ford’s contract ended, he and P Sole fought with PPR’s professionals, and both left in April 2004. Changing him wasn’t easy Alessandra Fachinetti quit after two seasons and it was changed by in-house add-ons designer Frida Giannini, who runs both men's clothing and womenswear. She’s worked out well to date her collections have loved commercial success, although she's yet to change the sartorial climate on the Ford-esque scale. In 2014, Alessandro Michele was hired as Creative Director.
