Giorgio Armani Moves Show to Mid-Week

Giorgio Armani has expressed desire in holding his main line fashion show in the middle of Milan Fashion Week instead of closing it again.

Milan Fashion Week doesn’t end until Giorgio Armani closes it with yet another one of his spectacular runway shows. This year, however, the Italian maestro has decided to move his show for Spring/Summer 2017 to mid-week instead, expressing fatigue at being the only international name to close Milan week year after year.

This stir-up comes after Giorgio Armani decided to show sister line Emporio Armani at Paris Fashion Week instead of Milan for Spring/Summer 2017. “Why should I be the only one to always close Fashion Week?” the celebrated Italian designer had said in June, WWD recalls. “There should be a turnover and I hope some of my colleagues will collaborate on this issue.”

Milan Fashion Week, which runs September 21 to 26 is slated to open with Gucci, followed by budding brands such as Piccione.Piccione, Lucio Vanotti and San Andrès Milano.
