MONDAY EVENING – The Giorgio Armani exhibition at the Triennale. I’m so sorry that my photograph does not do justice to this beautiful exhibition. The exhibition is even better that the first Guggenheim Armani show six years ago in New York. Exhibition designer, Robert Wilson has outdone himself. And, so has Giorgio Armani. Beautifully lit total black rooms after room of six hundred gorgeous dresses are exhibited in the Triennale. And, when you think you have had enough of black, suddenly you reach a white room. A pure treat. I’m particularly happy because I have two jackets and a pair of shorts in the show, they have returned home after the world tour.

MONDAY – Giorgio Armani Fashion Fall/Winter 2007/2008 Show. This is the ritual photograph after any Giorgio Armani fashion show, the maestro himself and his models. This picture comes before any interviews or any photographs of Mr. Armani and his celebrities. Bubble, Bubble, Bubble skirts was the message this season and no trousers on the runway, as well as, flat shoes and bare legs. Another Armani classic collection.
