A king of excess, Roberto Cavalli showed his first collection of printed leather gowns in 1970 and has since built a desirable lifestyle empire.
Exotic elegance, wild prints and bohemian glamour are inherent in every collection and his seductive cuts have provided everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Victoria Beckham with red-carpet drama.
At 71 years old, the designer is reluctant to retire, despite all that he has achieved. "Well, sometimes I say when I'm completely tired… but I feel a lot of responsibility to my fans: what they expect from me," he told Vogue in 2011. "They expect a lot, but at the same time fashion is a part of my DNA. I could never live without it."
Many leading models have worked for the brand: Jessica Stam, Eva Riccobono, Laetitia Casta, Natasha Poly, Mariacarla Boscono, Karen Elson, Karolina Kurkova and Ivan Olita amongst others.
