Born in Piacenza, Italy in 1934, Giorgio Armani revolutionized the fashion world with his androgynous approach to fashion. He completely revolutionized the idea of how different genders should style themselves.

He made the image of men softer by styling them with fabrics traditionally worn by women. Not only that, but he also styled women’s power suit with ideas traditionally used in men’s suits.

In the 1980 movie, American Gigolo, Richard Gere’s character wore Armani designed tailored suits. This further increased the visibility and prestige of the Armani brand.
