In a bid to support the next generation of talent, Giorgio Armani has just announced that he will be hosting the Ricostru fashion show during Milan Fashion Week. Taking place at the designer's restaurant Armani/Teatro, the show will see Chinese designer Rico Manchi Au present her vision for Spring/Summer '17 under the watchful eye of the fashion alum. 

Speaking about the show, Manchi Au said: "It's a tremendous honour for me to present my show in Giorgio Armani's space. He's the designer that, more than any other in the world, represents the concept of Italian fashion and of elegance. I want to thank Giorgio Armani for this incredible opportunity and for his support, which is concrete and very important for an up-and-coming brand like Ricostru."

Armani has also expressed his purpose for the collaboration saying: "Finding new talent internationally is extremely exciting for me: it's a moment of comparison and of growth, even for me. I appreciate Ricostru's clarity of purpose and precision in design."

Milan Fashion Week is set to take place from September 21-27 and the Armani runway collection will, for the first time ever, now take place on September 23.
