The history of climbing on the Roberto Cavalli fashion Olympus began November 15, 1940. That same day, the next scandalous fashion designer was born in a family of seamstresses and impressionist painter, so you could say that the fate of the boy was sealed over. Following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, Roberto Cavalli has been trained in the famous Florentine Academy of Fine Arts, where he received the basic knowledge and skills in the field of design and fine arts. Even during training young Roberto began to experiment with clothes: at first he just hand painted T-shirts and he sold them to tourists on the beaches of Saint-Tropez. But to stop there, he was not going to, he became interested in fabrics and textures, which are not recognized in the world of high fashion, such as the skin, and the combination of them with the world of art and high art. He began experimenting with new materials in his own print shop, and in the 60s fashion has patented its own technology for drawing on the skin. It was a revolution in the fashion world. Roberto Cavalli was the first to apply to the skin prints.
Immediately after this almost unknown designer opened his own production and produced the first collection of clothes. It has become a unique - the basic material was, of course, the skin in conjunction with animal skins and feathers of birds. But its uniqueness lies in the fact that the clothing of leather, stitched Roberto Cavalli suitable for grand receptions and picnic with friends.
