Gian Franco Ferre
Gianfranco Ferre's Style
Ferre consistently veered away from trends, publicity stunts, and stylistic gimmicks preferring instead to rely on the appeal and interest of careful designs and balanced forms for his collections. His clients included Sharon Stone, Elizabeth Taylor and Oprah Winfrey, to name just a few.
Starting from 1983, Ferre was awarded several times over in the fashion industry for his great talent and magnificent contributions to fashion.
Among the many awards that he earned through his creativeness and stylistic talent and rightfully received are the "Occhio d'oro" in 1982, 1983, 1984, 1986, 1987, and 1989, the "Modepreis" in 1985, the Cutty Sark Men's Fashion Award in 1985, and the "Milanese dell'anno" in 1989.
