    Isn’t it true that Armani had no formal training and began his career in retail, doing window displays?

    That is true, but he did work for years as a designer for Cerruti and then freelance before opening his own company at around 40 years old. In the next few weeks I will highlight some of the things that made his rise to the top so unique and yet a perfect example of how to succeed in the fashion business.

    Didn’t Martin Scorcese direct a small documentary about Armani? If so, is it worth watching?

    Yes, Scorcese did a documentary that weas great. Even better was a show I saw on A&E that followed Armani for about a year. It showed the real Armani screaming at assistants and preparing for a show, traveling to his stores and vacationing. Now you have made me want to watch it again. I will try and find the name and if it can be purchased.
