Born Giorgio Armani has an estimated net worth of $8.9 billion as per Forbes' list in 2014. He is known by various adjectives such as visionary, perfectionist and fashion moghul. Meet Giorgio Armani, the undisputed king of tailored suits who has singlehandedly created a standalone multi-billion fashion empire. It is not surprising that he comes from a city which is called the fashion capital of the world. A product of Milan, Giorgio Armani is the creator of one of the most well-known and upscale fashion brands in the world. His Italian company has gone from $14,000 in its first year towards becoming a fashion giant with an incredible $2 billion in annual sales. His personnel fortune has also seen some serious appreciation over the years, making him one of the richest fashion icons in the world. With a net worth touching $7 billion, Armani has little left to prove. However, the beginnings of this empire were rather humble. He founded the company, Giorgio Armani SpA in the early Seventies, with his late partner Sergio Galeotti with whatever funds they could raise after selling their Volkswagen. "We had no idea what we were doing," says the internationally acclaimed designer. "Only that we wanted to do it." That was 1975. The Armani empire now includes more than 250 stores in 33 countries which ring up worldwide sales of $2 billion a year. His fashion empire remains privately owned, meaning that he is the single shareholder of his company making him the last standalone fashion designer. His ever-growing portfolio includes ready-to-wear men's and women's fashion lines, a haute couture line, shoes, watches, cosmetics, housewares, electronics (TV and phone), a confectionary, cafes, a restaurant, bar and nightclub and, coming soon, the Armani Hotel at Burz Khalifa, the world's tallest tower and the most expensive one also.
