Giorgio Armani is an Italian fashion designer, particularly noted for his menswear. He is known today for his clean, tailored lines. He formed his company Armani in 1975 and by 2001 was acclaimed as the most successful designer to come out of Italy with an annual turnover of $1.6 billion and a personal fortune of $7 billion as of 2011.
I think that by far he's one of the smartest designers/entrepreneurs and he has almost turned his creations into an art!
This Haute Couture which is not exactly a Haute Couture but a Haute Pret a Porter is somewhat inspired by the 40's trends for a very natural and elegant woman. It has also been inspired by the Japanese culture with a sleek take on Kimonos.
