Giorgio Armani are to host, in the Teatro Armani, the collections of some of Italy’s newest designers.

The first event of this series will be the presentation of the S/S 2014 menswear collection by designer Andrea Pompilio, which marks the start of a program aimed at supporting upcoming Italian talents in creativity and fashion. "We need concrete actions to support Italian fashion, initiatives that give more strength and a feeling of novelty to Milan’s fashion week. It is for this reason that I decided to make my theatre on Via Bergognone available for the fashion shows of some of the most promising designers, who can count on my building’s technical services. So I invited Andrea Pompilio to present his menswear line; he will inaugurate this initiative, each season will feature different guests," said Giorgio Armani.

Andrea Pompilio said, "It's a huge honour for me to present my collection at Giorgio Armani’s venue, he’s a designer who has dictated Italian style on a global level more than any other. I am deeply grateful for this opportunity and to Giorgio Armani for his support, which represents significant support for a young brand like mine."
