History: The Bally Shoe company was founded as "Bally & Co" in 1851 by Carl Franz Bally (1821-1899) and his brother Fritz in the basement of their family home in Schönenwerd in the Canton of Solothurn, Switzerland. In 1854, a shoe factory was set up in the village but Fritz Bally left the fledgling business and Carl Franz Bally carried on under the corporate name "C.F. Bally."By the 1860s Bally employed more than 500 people. Within another decade it had built an international reputation for quality and design in both men's and women's shoes and expanded operations outside of Switzerland to Buenos Aires, Argentina; Montevideo, Uruguay; and Paris, France.In North America, Bally has boutiques in Atlanta, Beverly Hills, Boston, Costa Mesa, Honolulu, Houston, Las Vegas, Ledyard, McLean, New York City, and Panama City. Carl Franz Bally died in 1899 and his sons carried on with the business. Although the Bally family maintained voting control, in 1907 "C.F. Bally & Co. Ltd." went public, their shares listed on the Swiss Stock Exchange. The added capital allowed massive expansion for their much-in-demand shoes and by 1916 they employed more than 7,000 people. The company survived the Great Depression of the 1930s and the difficulties of World War II to expand globally with great success in the post-War era including a successful entry into the North American market. In 1976 they added clothing, handbags and other leather accessories. The following year the Bally family sold their interest in the company. Numerous difficulties followed and the company struggled under poor management against a tide of low-cost products from developing countries flooding the global market. In 1999 Bally was sold to the American investment fund Texas Pacific Group. On 22 April 2008 it was announced that Bally International AG is to be sold to Labelux Group Inc. Today the company is headquartered in Caslano, Ticino, Switzerland.

History Achille Maramotti began designing couture clothing in 1947, and officially established the House of Max Mara in 1951.The "Mara" came from his surname, while "Max" referred to Count Max, a local character who was seldom sober but always stylish.Maramotti was one of the first to see that the future of fashion lay in the mass production of designer-quality clothes.He was also keen to emphasise the brand of Max Mara ahead of the names of individual designers, even though he employed future big names such as Karl Lagerfeld, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Dolce & Gabbana and Narciso Rodriguez.The company remains in the hands of the family and they like to maintain a veil of secrecy about the activities of the company.

Brands Max Mara has spawned 35 labels,although Max Mara womenswear remains the core of the company.
Other brands include Sportmax, Sportmax Code, Weekend Max Mara, Marella, Pennyblack, iBlues, Max & Co. (the trendy, youth division), and Marina Rinaldi.This last, founded in 1980 and named after Achille Maramotti’s great grandmother, is one of the best-known: in her obituary of Maramotti for The Independent,Annalisa Barbieri described it as ‘one of the most successful collections for size 16-plus women.

History Giorgio Armani and Sergio Galeotti founded the company in Milan in 1975 with capital of $10,000. Armani today employs about 4,700 employees and has 13 factories around the world. It has nearly 300 stores in 36 countries.Recently, the house has begun an haute couture operation, showing in Paris during the Haute Couture fashion week, under the name of Armani Privé. Unlike much of the fashion industry, which is held by massive multi-nationals like LVMH and relies heavily on licensing, Armani is held privately by Giorgio Armani and produces the vast majority of its products in-house.

Lines Emporio Armani is a more youthful inspired Armani Line that markets for younger adults. The line can be bought at its 13 American boutiques and over 140 worldwide boutiques, making it the largest distributed Armani brand. Products encompassed by this brand include ready-to-wear clothes, sunglasses, perfume, accessories and watches. The line is considered a "bridge line" as it features higher-end products than Armani Exchange or Armani Jeans but is not as expensive as the exclusive Armani Collezioni ('black label') lines. Emporio Armani is sold in freestanding Emporio Armani boutiques, in high-end department stores, and through their online store.

History: Betty Barclay was founded by Max Berk following a trip to New York during the 1950s when he stumbled across a brand called Betty Barclay, which was creating an impact among American teenagers .Max returned to Germany, bought the license for production and distribution of the American collection and adapted it to European tastes. Within a few years, sales grew to almost DM20m and approximately 1000 employees were working in 10 factories. The Gil Bret, Second and Vera Mont collections have since been created. In June 1999, the Betty Barclay brand shifted its focus from the exclusively classic to a stronger fashion-led orientation reflecting the words of UK CEO, Denise Shepherd that “women are no longer defined by their age but by their approach to life”. Today, the brand employs more than 1500 people worldwide and produces more than six million items a year.
