THE LONGEST FRIDAY OF THE YEAR
Trussardi is an Italian fashion house, founded in 1911 by Dante Trussardi, a leather glove maker. After his death, Dante's nephew took over the business and expanded products line to additional leather goods. By the 1990s Trussardi was selling internationally, with its largest markets in Italy and Japan. As of 2014 Tomaso Trussardi is CEO, Gaia Trussardi is Creative Director, and Maria Luisa Trussardi is President of the Trussardi Group. Current collections for the fashion house are Trussardi, Tru Trussardi, and Trussardi Jeans. Each of these lines has their own stand-alone stores and covers different aspects of the house's customer base: traditional, a younger crowd, and casual.
