Armani's talent hunt continues

In the spotlight?

Christian Pellizzari is the latest fledgling designer to so impress Giorgio Armani that he will show his s/s 2015 menswear collection at the Armani/Teatro: Armani's exclusive Milan show space.

Armani's initiative to actively support the new generation of creative talent to come out of Italy by literally putting them on his fashion stage is now in its fifth season.

‘Offering young and promising designers a real opportunity for visibility is something that I'm passionate about,' Armani said, adding that he wished Pellizzari 'a bright future’.

‘I am proud and flattered to have been chosen by the undisputed international fashion icon that is Giorgio Armani,' he said. 'During my career, his talent, consistency and timeless style have always fascinated me.'
