MILAN — In a ranking of the top 50 Italian fashion firms that have the requisites to go public, Dolce & Gabbana remains in the top spot, followed by Giorgio Armani — second only given the age of the founding designer — and the Ermenegildo Zegna Group.
On Wednesday, luxury and fashion consultancy Pambianco Strategie di Impresa presented at the Milan Bourse its 2012 study of the fashion companies that have the right characteristics for a stock market listing in a three-to-five-year period — independently from any actual plans by the companies to go public. In fact, Domenico Dolce, Stefano Gabbana, Giorgio Armani and Gildo Zegna, chief executive officer of the textile and fashion giant, have repeatedly said the plan was to keep their companies private. Pambianco this year added a ranking of the top 15 home and design firms, which saw Kartell secure the first slot.
