GUESS! Who? GUESS by Marciano!

by Sofroina Timmons

A stroke of the fore-finger and a design is created. A flick of a wrist and a stitch is sustained. In 1981 Paul and Maurice Marciano founded a small denim company in California. Their love of the American West combined with a European sensibility became the driving force behind the creation of GUESS. Paul Marciano, Chief Executive Officer and Creative Director, is credited with the vision that is the cornerstone of the GUESS image, leading to some of the most innovative and ground-breaking icons in the history of advertising. Paul's discerning style shaped GUESS from its inception. Defined by dramatic photography, his images invite an emotional response from viewers.

Maurice Marciano, Chairman, is truly the motivator behind the company's spirit and unrelenting commitment to superior quality. It is Maurice's undeniable sixth sense for fashion design, as well as his insightful business direction, that has fostered and maintained the integrity of the GUESS brand concept. Today, GUESS has grown to be one of the largest and most successful fashion brands in the world. Paul and Maurice both have been instrumental to the growth and prosperity of the brands since their inception. Their passion and dedication to the company is unsurpassed in the fashion industry.
