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 title, 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 line with the outlet, he then added, “Why ought to I all the time 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 individuals. However for those who go to see your dentist and he places you within the arms of his assistant, what’s your response? They informed 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 nicely.”
In an announcement shared with WWD, Vogue Communications Director Hildy Kuryk mentioned, “Anna has the best respect for Giorgio Armani and every thing he has achieved for Italy and vogue worldwide.”
“Sadly, with the style calendar now operating for greater than a month, there are some reveals that Anna shouldn’t be in a position to attend,” the assertion continued.
