After Anna missed Giorgio’s Milan Style Week present in 2014, the designer spoke out. And whereas he did not point out the Vogue editor in chief by title, many assumed he was referring to Anna. “There are some preferring to snub the Giorgio Armani present and go to Paris,” he stated, per WWD. “She took an airplane, dumped Mr. Armani and went to Paris.”
In line with the outlet, he then added, “Why ought to I at all times be the moron [translating from an Italian expletive] to be penalized due to an individual, who, for higher or for worse, like or dislike it, is highly effective? I really feel penalized. She stated she was sending her individuals. However if you happen to go to see your dentist and he places you within the arms of his assistant, what’s your response? They instructed me, ‘She went to see the Privé in Paris; she has no time to see the ready-to-wear in Milan.’ She is influential and highly effective. However, maybe, I am influential as effectively.”
In a press release shared with WWD, Vogue Communications Director Hildy Kuryk stated, “Anna has the best respect for Giorgio Armani and all the things he has achieved for Italy and trend worldwide.”
“Sadly, with the style calendar now working for greater than a month, there are some exhibits that Anna isn’t capable of attend,” the assertion continued.
