Kelvin Ng is the founder and chief designer of the brand; therefore, he uses his name, “KELVIN,” as the first word of the brand name. “GIORMANI” is supposed to be another brand that Kelvin founded earlier in 1999 which targets local Hong Kong market at the mass level. In 2008 when he decided to found another new brand targeting international market at the higher level, he wanted to keep the word “GIORMANI” as the second word of the new brand when a lot of Kelvin’s international business partners had known the brand existence of “GIORMANI” for years.
“GIORMANI” was first released in 1999 by the founders, Kelvin Ng & Jane Tong, in Hong Kong as a local sofa and retail brand. This name was suggested by their close Italian friend, Lorenzo Mari, in Hong Kong who had inspired Kelvin & Jane on quality leather sofa production and to create their own company. Several Italian names were suggested and finally the word “GIORMANI” was chosen because of its nice sounding. In the ‘90s of last century, Italian-made furniture had a positive image in Hong Kong; Kelvin & Jane wanted their first brand to sound Italian because they had been strongly connected with and influenced by Italian leather and furniture sectors before they started their own company.
