Fashion Industry Broadcast's Masters of Fashion Series is one of the most extensive and prestigious publishing initiatives ever released this subject. In this the 2nd of our Series of 4 we visit profile the lives and legends of the biggest brand names, designers and houses in Italian fashion. There is fashion, and then there is the truly sublime. To fully appreciate Italian fashion one needs to walk the Quadrilatero, the handful of sacred cobblestoned Milanese streets where a new pantheon of deities are worshipped. On these hallowed boulevards the fashion faithful from all over the world make their Haj. In just a handful of streets one can be awestruck by the temples of Gucci, Armani, Prada, Versace, Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Missoni, Cavalli et al. This is not shopping this is transcendence. Italian fashion has come a long way over the last 50 years, it has seen the rise of many billion dollar empires. Italian fashion has seen its share of high drama. There have been the high stakes corporate powerplays for ownership and control. There have been movie stars, the supermodels, even murders.
