Italian high fashion was born in 1951 when Gian Battista Giorgini organized the first runway show featuring the collections of designers including: Sorelle Fontana, Simonetta Visconti and Pucci. This runway, a fashion first in Italy, took place in the Villa Torrigiani in Florence. News of this event spread around the world, initiating the Made in Italy fashion phenomenon. Italy and Italian fashion designers have been the pioneers of numerous fashion trends, new design techniques and pure creative genius.
