Roberto Cavalli, born in Florence, Italy on November 15, 1940 was raised in modest surroundings. He had rather strong artistic traditions, his mother was a tailor and his grandfather a Florentine impressionist painter, whose works can still be seen at the Uffizi Museum. While a student at the Academy of Art, he invented a process of printing on light-weight leather which he later patented. Cavalli's early printing-house was a cross between a craftsman's workshop and an artist's studio where he concentrated his studies on the links between art, fashion and painting. In 1972, Cavalli showed his first collection in the historic White Room of Palazzo Pitti in Florence. In the 90's Cavalli re-launched his career with the help of his wife, Eva Duringer and ex-Miss Universe. He has become and intricate part of the Italian fashion system by creating lines for the whole family including the home itself. An inspiration to the international jet-set and a great party host, Roberto Cavalli is sometimes taken for granted by stars such as Ornella Muti, Anna Oxa, Nancy Brilli, Jennifer Lopez, Mena Suvari, Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige, Cindy Crawford, Cher, Lenny Kravitz, Bono Vox of U2, Anthony Hopkins and Sting.
