Guccio Gucci was the son of an Italian merchant fromt he countries most Northern region. He created the House of Gucci in Florence in 1906 with his own two hands, it was initially a family-owned leather saddlery shop. From a very early age Gucci was known as a unique and exceptional craftsman and he began creating some of the finest leather bags that he sold to horsemen in the 1920's. By 1938 Gucci had earned such a profit from his work and such a reputation that he was able to open a boutique in Rome. In 1947 they produced the bamboo handle handbag that is still a best seller in the company today. Gucci remained one of the leading providers of luxury goods until the late 1970's when financial stresses and family arguments took their tool on the buisness and brought Gucci to the brink of collapse. In 1979 as an effort to re-launch the brand Gucci launched GAC, the Gucci Accessories Collection that was intended to boost the sales of the companies fine fragrances. GAC proved to be such a huge success that it initially outsold the perfume lines that Gucci produced even though the accessories were priced much lower. This early success did not last however and GAC eventually proved to be the nail in the metaphorical coffin for the company; the Gucci dynasty came crashing down and the perfumes once again outsold the accessories. "In the 1960s and 1970s," writes Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, "Gucci had been at the pinnacle of chic, thanks to icons such as Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Jacqueline Onassis. But by the 1980s, Gucci had lost its appeal, becoming a tacky airport brand."

In the late 80's after a major management change after the death of a major shareholder Maurizio persuaded Dawn Mello to join the newly formed Gucci Group as the creative director. The early 1990's saw what is often regarded as the poorest time in the companies history and many shareholders were forced to sell their shares to Investcorp in the early 90's. Dawn Mello returned to her old job and the company seemed to be lost. De Sole, the new CEO of Gucci realised that if the company were to survive then it would require a completely new image, so he listened to a large amount of advice before continuing. After a boom in the late 90's thanks to this image change the company was put up for sale in 2004 for a massive £7.2 billion.
