Giorgio Armani has limited skills

In a recent article on the trend of banning underweight models from appearing in fashion shows, Giorgio Armani is quoted as saying that he prefers models “on the slender side” because “the clothes I design and the sort of fabrics I use need to hang correctly on the body”.

Would it be grossly unfair of me to characterise this as Giorgio saying that he’s a designer of limited skill, only able to work within his particular niche, and only capable of, or interested in, designing clothes for a very slim section of humanity?

I think that if he were a truly world-class designer, he’d find a way to make fabrics “hang correctly” on real people.

    All it means is that the same pressures that got models to become sickly rail thin have now turned and that we should expect ‘fashion’ in female for to turn back toward a healthy weight.
