Giorgio Armani on His Work Ethic

Young Giorgio Armani Didn't Work Hard, as He "Was Quite Good Looking"

"Up until I was about 30 to 32-years-old, I used to potter around doing a small job at a department store," Giorgio Armani said recently. "I used to coordinate what went into the window or other store tasks. And I didn't have to work very hard — because, well, I was quite good looking. The female managers in the shop used to favor me, making things really easy for me."

So when did Armani become the tireless businessman he is today? "I realized that I couldn't and didn't want to go on living like that — on the fringes of a beautiful profession, without working hard, without risking, without standing up for it," he said. "I had to somehow wake up and doing this made me into who I am today."
