Couture Scandale: Armani Upset By Schedule Change
So much for couture’s supposed stiff upper lip. We usually expect the drama to attend the ready-to-wear collections rather than couture—especially this season, with Christian Lacroix off the schedule—but a note circulating from Mr. Giorgio Armani himself seems to indicate otherwise. His presentation next Monday is being moved from 7:30 to 9 p.m. due to what he deems an “unexpected and unjustifiable” time change on the part of Dior. He goes on to call Dior’s action “indicative of a lack of respect for other people’s time and labor.” We’ve contacted Dior for its side of the story. Stay tuned.
