What initially started as an at-home workshop in a small village quickly boomed into becoming one of the number one fashion houses in the world. It became an international sensation in 1967 after their models walked the Florence runways in sheer blouses and nothing underneath. Although they were banned from Fashion Week, Missoni became a household name in high demand of the young, fashionable and famous.
