Happy Giorgio Armani Day!

Designer celebrated in New York

Apparently, the New York’s Mayor Bloomberg is partial to a bit of the Armani jazz – so much so, that he has officially decreed today Giorgio Armani Day.

The impressive recognition stems from the Italian designer’s ‘longstanding relationship with the city of New York, for supporting the fund for public schools and contributing to the economy’, we’re told.

Tonight, Armani will take his ‘One Night Only’ show, which has most recently been held in Rome and Beijing, to the Big Apple.

Says Armani: ‘In such a special day for me, it is a great honour 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.’

We’re not entirely sure what an Armani Day celebration entails, but if you want to make it about a new pair of boots, we won’t tell.
