After Anna missed out on Giorgio’s Milan Fashion Week display in 2014, the designer spoke up. And while he didn’t discuss the Vogue editorial director by name, lots of presumed he was describing Anna.
“There are some who prefer to snub the Giorgio Armani show and go to Paris,” he stated, per WWD. “She took an airplane, dumped Mr. Armani and went to Paris.”
According to the outlet, he then included, “Why should I constantly be the idiot [translating from an Italian expletive] to be punished since of an individual, who, for much better or for even worse, like or dislike it, is effective? I feel punished. She stated she was sending her individuals. But if you visit your dental expert and he puts you in the hands of his assistant, what’s your response? They informed me ‘She visited the Privé in Paris; she has no time at all to see the ready-to-wear in Milan.’ She is prominent and effective. But, possibly, I’m prominent too.”
In a declaration shown WWD, Vogue Communications Director Hildy Kuryk stated “Anna has the greatest respect for Giorgio Armani and everything he has done for Italy and fashion worldwide.”
“Unfortunately, with the fashion calendar now running for more than a month, there are some shows that Anna is not able to attend,” the declaration continued.
