He has brought the world Cavalli clubs in Florence and Dubai, Cavalli cafés in Milan, a homewares range and one of the most well-known fashion labels in the world. So in the year that he celebrates the 40th anniversary of his brand, what's next for Roberto Cavalli?
Well, he's not exactly slowing things down. Plans have been agreed with the Pragma Group to open five more Cavalli clubs and 15 Cavalli cafés over the next five years. These will open in locations all over the world, including the Middle East, South America, Istanbul and India.
