After Anna missed Giorgio’s Milan Vogue Week present in 2014, the designer spoke out. And whereas he did not point out the Vogue editor in chief by identify, many assumed he was referring to Anna. “There are some preferring to snub the Giorgio Armani present and go to Paris,” he mentioned, per WWD. “She took an airplane, dumped Mr. Armani and went to Paris.”
In response to 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 mentioned she was sending her folks. However in the event you go to see your dentist and he places you within the fingers of his assistant, what’s your response? They advised 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 mentioned, “Anna has the best respect for Giorgio Armani and every part he has achieved for Italy and style worldwide.”
“Sadly, with the style calendar now operating for greater than a month, there are some exhibits that Anna shouldn’t be in a position to attend,” the assertion continued.
