Gianfranco Ferre (1944-2007) began designing jewelry in the late 1960s. By the early 1970s he was designing accessories for other designers, and he made a name for himself designing tee shirts for Fiorucci. Starting in 1974, Ferre designed for the Italian Baila label. In 1978 he began designing women’s ready-to-wear under his own name, and he started a men’s line in 1982. He started a couture label in 1986. Ferre was chosen to design the Dior collection in 1989, a position he held until 1996. He continued to design until his death in 2007.
