Yet Armani’s not one to hold a grudge. With nearly 30 years in the business, he understands the ebb and flow of fashion and looks back fondly on the role the U.S. has played in his career.
“America has been extremely important for me because that’s where I was first truly recognized,” he said.
Recognition is of course no longer a problem for Armani, but that’s not stopping him from reaching out to an even broader audience with his fashion show.
“It’s a little gift I’m giving to New York.”
