Founded in 1921 in the capital of fashion, Italy, Gucci has been at the forefront of fashion for nearly 100 years. The company started out making luxury leather goods before expanding its range to include a range of fashion menswear and ladies clothing. During the 1980’s the company was beset by internal arguments and difficulties and was on several occasions close to bankruptcy. However the 1990’s saw a change on fortune and this was in the main down to the appointment of Tom Ford who was brought in as the technical and creative director of the luxury brand. Ford revolutionised Gucci’s output and direction and they were quickly back into the black. Fragrances, cosmetics and luggage were added to the range as well as fantastic range of Gucci Sunglasses.
