Born in Florence, Italy in 1944, Roberto Cavalli attended the Florence Art Academy. His career started in 1965 when he was 21 years old by painting t-shirts with a friend from art school. He then set up a factory to do the printing. Later on in the early 70's Roberto Cavalli innovated by painting straignt onto skin. This idea was met with success and Italian Vogue began to take notice of Cavalli.
In 1977 Roberto was invited to judge a Miss Universe contest, and met one of the contestants Eva who became his wife and mother of their 3 children. She started by helping with the knitwear garments and now helps with all the projects at the Cavalli factory.
