Romeo Gigli is an Italian fashion designer who as described in the late 1980’s as singlehandedly changing the course of fashion according to the LA Times. He was a child of Studio 54 and started his first label in 1981 but when this failed he established a partnership with Carla Sozzani, sister of Franca Sozzani. His romantic designes: narrow fitted trouwers, tulip shaped skirts, flat shoes were seen as the antithesis of the 1980s. Alexander McQueen was among his assistants in 1989.
