GIORGIO ARMANI SPEAKS TO THE STUDENTS OF Fashion Institute of Technology,
RECEIVES AWARD FOR GLOBAL LEADERSHIP IN FASHION AT HEARST

 

New York / May 6, 2008 -- Giorgio Armani, in a rare New York appearance, addressed hundreds of cheering FIT students last Tuesday. As part of their admission to see him, all of the students were clad in t-shirts with a bold “I MET GIORGIO ARMANI” across their chest. The students presented Armani with a t-shirt that read “I MET THE STUDENTS,” which he immediately put on while hugging the students and signing autographs.
Giorgio Armani headed uptown to Hearst Tower afterwards to meet FIT’s founding Couture Council Chairmen Liz Peek, Sarah Wolfe, and Yaz Hernandez, where FIT presented him with the first Couture Council Award for Global Fashion Leadership at a gala luncheon. Armani arrived with his good friend, Glenn Close, who presented him with the prestigious award. As she gave him the award, she noted that she was on the worst-dressed list before she met Mr. Armani, and that, “If Giorgio Armani stopped
his fashion magic, I’d just stay in my jammies.”
Upstairs at Hearst, actresses Ziyi Zhang and Camilla Belle, along with George Clooney’s girlfriend, Sarah Larson, stopped to admire a beautiful Armani dress laden with Swarovski crystals that was generously donated to the Museum at FIT.
Guests included hosts Nadja Swarovski, and Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey; Roberta Armani, Rosanna Armani,
Silvana Armani, Matilda Cuomo, Jamee Gregory, Princess Mafalda von Hessen, Audrey Gruss, Marjorie Gubelmann, Zani Gugelmann, Susan Gutfreund, Sarah Larson, Suzy Menkes, Jacqueline Sackler, Eugenia Silva, Eleanor Ylvisaker, designers Doo.Ri Chung, Robert Lee Morris, and Devi Kroell, Dr. Valerie Steele, Director of the Museum at FIT, and Dr. Joyce F.
Brown, President of FIT, and more.
The Museum at FIT is the only museum in New York City dedicated primarily to the art of fashion. The museum collects, conserves,
documents, exhibits, and interprets fashion. The Couture Council is an elite membership group of informed and enthusiastic individuals who help support the exhibitions and programs of
 The Museum at FIT.
