Milan, March 2003 Armani presented his Fall/Winter 2003 collection. His models wore black A-line mini’s with high heels which reminded

us of the 1960’s.

Armani showed off his Spring/Summer collection during Milan fashion week in September 2003. The collection was a jaunty nautical show

of stripes that went in every direction on shorts, baggy pants, high-

waist trousers, jackets, skimpy summer dresses and even floppy

s a m o hT hats.

My opinions on Giorgio Armani’s past and present concepts on fashion

are that they are definitely unique. The reason why I chose mostly, if not all girl portraits and ready wear, is because the men’s wear class is mostly made up of girls, with only 2 men in the class ( I think the third man dropped the class ). I feel that the women could better identify with these types of outfits and concepts of fashion even though it is a

menswear class. I know that the women of the class want to learn about menswear, this is the reason why they are taking the class, but if I can learn something about women’s wear in return, then what harm am I doing. To be quite honest, I love Armani’s fashion and I am a loyal customer to a lot of his clothing designs. I must say that I never really had the chance to get into dept about his women’s clothing, but after doing the research that was required in this paper, I actually learned a lot and
