From being a confused indecisive young man to becoming the world’s best fashion designer, Giorgio Armani least expected it. He was born into a family of four, parents Ugo Armani, Maria Raimondi and siblings Sergio and Rosanna. It was after joining a medical course at University of Piacenza, that he quit three years after to serve a compulsory term with the armed forces for a brief period of time.
He went on to join a garments shop, La Rinascente, where he assisted the photographer and helped in arranging the window. This was where he remained for seven years and got the required exposure to the textile business, fashion designing and marketing, after being promoted as sales person for the men’s section.
