Yeah I am talking about Gucci, the brand that gives women what they desire, to sparkle on the red carpet, Italian design handbags and so forth.
I was lucky enough to visit the
Gucci Museum in Florence. It is there from 3 October until 8 February 2015. It was a beautiful museum, just as magical like the evening gowns on the red carpet. You can see the very beginning of Gucci and there first luggage bags.
I read that Guccio Gucci was inspired by London while he was working in the Savoy Hotel. He brought his ideas back to Italy and opened a leather goods company and small luggage store in his native Florence.
Fascinating right? How you can grow to a well known world wide luxury brand with just your ambition, your inspiration in the right time and at the right place and some money to invest off course.
Anyway I love the history behind big famous brands. It gives me inspiration and the feeling that everything is possible. Except buying a Gucci bag, I am still a student. So no Gucci bag at this time. But with a vision, a dream we can be entrepreneurs! It is a matter of giving people what they want, just before they recognize the need.
Enjoy your day!
