ROME — Giorgio Armani’s “One Night Only” here tonight is meant to be a celebration of Italy.
“I strongly believe in being Italian, which does not mean blind localism but support for the value and characteristics of our country,” Armani told WWD during a fitting a day ahead of the bash. “This is the main reason for organizing this event. A significant and important happening, perhaps against the trend: We entrepreneurs must be the first to have faith in the potential of the country.”
