Georgio Armani’s iconic imprint on the luxury fashion industry is set to be honoured at the 2019 Fashion Awards later this year with the Outstanding Achievement accolade. The glamorous ceremony is set to take place at the end of this year in the Royal Albert Hall, London.
A press release statement from the British Fashion Council announced that Armani will be recognised for “his outstanding contribution to the global fashion industry, his creativity and vision of timeless style and care for detail, that have provided such inspiration to so many in the industry.”
The designer and businessman is creative director of the Emporio and Giorgio Armani labels, as well as chairman and CEO of the Armani group. Armani has always been directly involved within the company’s creative and strategic decisions, and has overseen the tremendous growth of the label over the last 40 years, starting from a small, ready-to-wear brand, blossoming into a luxurious high fashion empire that has now become a household name.
There is no doubt that Armani will be joining a list of highly revered company - previous winners of the Outstanding Achievement accolade include Miuccia Prada, Ralph Lauren, Karl Lagerfeld and Manolo Blahnik.
The 2019 Fashion Awards will take place at the Royal Albert Hall on Monday 2 December.
