In 1987, while still in his early 20s, Mossimo Giannulli opened a small clothing store that grossed $1 million within its first year.
Giannulli later became the youngest-ever CEO of a company traded on the New York Stock Exchange. In the spring of 2000, Mossimo, Inc. announced a multi-product licensing agreement with Target stores, allowing Giannulli’s company to design a broader range of products and take advantage of Target’s merchandising power and distribution capabilities.
In 2004, Giannulli acquired Modern Amusement, a men’s and women’s contemporary collection known for its creative graphic designs.
Giannulli continues his work with Modern Amusement. He and his wife, Lori Loughlin, have three children and live in Los Angeles.
