Wednesday February 18th 2009 – 717 5th Avenue – 8 pm
Giorgio Armani literally landed his world on fifth avenue. For the first time in the US all the Armani brands are reunited under one roof. We were amazed by the architectural structure of the store, “these stairs are amazing” said Molly Sims while going to the upper level. Unless other brand’s store the Armani store has a very New York spirit. The designer’s 43,000-square-foot store is another symbol of the strength of his business. Although the global economy has nose-dived since the designer’s announcement to invest here a year ago, Armani has no regrets. That said, mirroring the gloomy times, he decided to nix a post-opening bash complete with a runway show and dinner,The opening party.
The top floor was crowded with all the celebrities posing with Giorgio Armani, we ran into Victoria Beckham who’s the newest face of the Emporio Armani Underwear campaign.
