Designer Bio…

Born in 1881, Italian fashion designer Guccio Gucci built himself a reputation on his superior craftsmanship.  In 1920, Gucci began his career selling bags to horsemen after 16 years at the House of Gucci which began as a leather saddlery shop.

Expansion was inevitable with Gucci’s talent and the business opened it’s first retail store in Rome then to Milan in 1951. Gucci is one of the most well known brands globally and has won several prestigious awards including:  Designer of the Year (1996), British GQ International Man of the Year Award (2000), and Time’s Best Fashion Designer (2001).
