Armani has announced its rescheduled One Night Only Dubai fashion show will take place on October 26, celebrating the 10th anniversary of Armani Hotels in Milan and Dubai, according to a report in Abu Dhabi’s The National newspaper.
The event was originally planned for November 2020 but was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“I am very happy to return to Dubai after 11 years with one of my itinerants One Night Only: an event that was cancelled due to a health emergency and that will coincide with Expo 2020. It will also be an opportunity to celebrate the 10th anniversary of my Armani Hotels,” says Giorgio Armani.
In Dubai, the brand has the Armani Hotel Dubai, inside the Burj Khalifa, and several stores, including locations at The Dubai Mall, Mall of the Emirates and Dubai International Airport. It also has the Emporio Armani Caffe at Mall of the Emirates, as well as junior and home stores.
“In the very city that will hold Expo 2020, the major event that was also postponed due to Covid-19, Giorgio Armani will host a fashion show to celebrate the [brand’s regional] anniversary,” the brand said.
Armani has previously hosted One Night Only events in cities including London in 2006, Tokyo in 2007, Beijing in 2012, Rome and New York in 2013 and Paris in 2014.
