Founded on 2 January 1924 - for individuals with ambition and the drive to succeed.
After World War II and the founder's death in 1948, Hugo Boss started to turn its focus from uniforms to men's suits. The company went public in 1988 and introduced a fragrance line that same year, added men's and women's wear diffusion lines in 1997, a full women's collection in 2000, as well as children's clothing in 2006–2007 and has since evolved into a major global fashion house.
The company sells clothing, accessories, footwear and fragrances. Hugo Boss is one of the largest German clothing companies.
