Autobiography of Amancio Ortega

Who does not know about the Inditex fashion group? The eminent organization is one of the best fashion industries in the world. Mr Ortega's origin is from Spain. He spent a big chunk of his childhood in Busdongo De Asbas in Spain. At a very early age of 14, Mr Ortega stopped his education mid way and got shifted with his family at La Coruna.

After moving to a new location, he managed to get an employment as a shoemaker at a local shop of La Coruna. At the shop, he acquired the learning skills of stitching and making clothes. Later in 1972, he started his own firm which he names Comfecciones Goa. It is the organization where he used to sell out quilted bathrobes made by him. With the help of the fabulous work of the countless women workers, his business started flourishing. He decided to start his store named Zara in 1975.

Taking the help of his wife, the store became one of the leading stores of the city. Apart from more than 6000 branded stores, Inditex Group has been succeeded in notching a huge success in every brand of clothing.

Mr Ortega's simple living style made him very popular in his fans. His active participation in the process of design is very commendable. He never wore the crown of pride on his head. He always kept himself away from the glam world. One of the interesting sides of his personality is that he has never worn attires manufactured by his company. In 2000, he came into limelight which became a prominent headline in numerous press agencies. Till date, the products of Inditex have been successful in retaining its third position in the fashion industry.
