Today is Giorgio Armani day, in New York as decreed by Mayor, Michael Bloomberg. Armani opened his Madison Avenue boutique thirty five years ago and has continually supported the local economy and New York schools.
"It's such a special day for me, it is a great honor to receive this recognition, which reaffirms a strong personal and professional bond with New York, a city that has given me and continues giving me so much," Armani told WWD.
The 79 year old Armani will host an event “One Night Only”, at Hudson River Park's Super Pier this evening. Guests will be privy to an exclusive runway venue featuring more than 100 of the Designer;s fashions from his haute couture collection.
