Guccio Gucci was born in Florence, Italy and opened the first Gucci shop there in 1920. He was a fashion designer known best for fine leather craftsmanship and accessories. Gucci's four sons joined the Gucci firm and in 1953, the year of their father's death, the first overseas Gucci shop opened in New York City. During the 1980s Gucci was passed on to Guccio Gucci's Grandson Maurizio. Family and legal disputes troubled the Gucci firm and by 1993 Investcorp owned 100% of the company.
Today the Gucci Group owns numerous fashion companies, including Stella McCartney, Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen. Gucci is a cutting edge brand, creating classic yet innovative fashion and accessories. Gucci is embraced by celebrities on the red carpet as well as high end consumers.
