The Trussardi Group was founded in Bergamo in 1911 by Dante Trussardi. Dubbed the 'staple brand of Italy,' Trussardi began as a glove brand, which expanded when Nicola Trussardi joined the company and expanded the collection into menswear and womenswear ready-to-wear lines. In 2005, the design house launched a diffusion line, Tru Trussardi, the casual, younger sister of Trussardi, which offers versatile clothing that can be easily mixed and matched to a range of personal tastes. Tru Trussardi dresses embody the fashion house's DNA of elegant and quality clothing made in Italy, with a contemporary twist. Twists, drapes and bold colours complete these dresses in a variety of shapes and lengths.
