Milan Fashion Week: Giorgio Armani offers boy-girl fall look
MILAN (AP) - Giorgio Armani had the last word at Milan Fashion Week, and not only where the clothes were concerned.
Speaking to reporters between his two shows on Monday, the closing day of preview shows for the fall-winter 2013-2014 season, the designer lashed out at some colleagues who in his opinion are more interested in spectacles than sales.
"One thing is to put on a play, the other is to create fashion," Armani said.
"It's not about models wearing gold crowns, '' Armani said, taking a jab at Sunday's Dolce&Gabbana show with its Byzantine princess motif. "(It's) about what you can find in the store."
