Giorgio Armani, Carnegie Hall Fashion Show, 1990

Giorgio Armani for Armani

Carnegie Hall

Carnegie Hall
New York, United States

Armani developed a European reputation in the 1970s for his lines of Italian tailoring in ready to wear for men and women. His popularity spread to the US when Richard Gere wore his outfits in the 1970 film American Gigolo. In 1991, he introduced the A/X Armani Exchange lines and boutiques. The garments here reveal the menswear tailoring that made him famous carried out on luxury fabrics and colors, including (on the center and stage left model) the gold of Carnegie Hall’s molding.
