Armani to host Edmund Ooi during Milan Men's Fashion Week
Thanks to Mr. Armani, on January 17 of the upcoming Milan Men's Fashion Week, Malaysian-born fashion designer Edmund Ooi will kickstart the stylish festivities, unveiling his latest menswear collection.
"The initiative to support the new generation of designers, which started a few seasons ago, continues to excite me because I concretely see the results and I try to keep an international perspective," Armani said, highlighting the fact that Ooi was only 19-years-old when he received the best avant-garde designer award, with him now living and working in Antwerp, Belgium.
"I'm incredibly honoured that Giorgio Armani chose me to show my collection in his beautiful theater," Ooi said. "For a young designer like me, words are not enough to express the emotion and gratitude to be able to unveil my work and the things I trust to the world."
In the past Armani used his Italian theatre to highlight many emerging designers including Andrea Pompilio, Stella Jean, Julian Zigerli, Christian Pellizzari and Angelos Bratis.
