GIORGIO ARMANI ANNOUNCES THE FOURTH IN THE SERIES OF ARMANI TWEET TALKS, ‘FASHION VERSUS DESIGN’, TO BE HELD IN MILAN ON 10TH APRIL 2014
Milan, 31st March 2014 – Giorgio Armani is pleased to announce the fourth Armani Tweet Talks event that will go live in Milan during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile di Milano on the afternoon of Thursday 10th April. The subject for this forum: ‘Fashion versus Design’.
#ArmaniTweetTalks is a series of live discussions on topics related to the fashion and design industries, broadcasted on the web through the Twitter platform, a combination of live event and digital transmission. The talks take the form of a panel discussion. Participants are chosen for their expertise and authority in a given field, number of Twitter followers and their ability to engage with an audience.
Armani acts as facilitator, initiating the conversation – as well as opening up the discussion to Twitter followers so they can join in – and encouraging the panelists to explore the subject in question. Divided into volumes, the talks are accessible on tweettalks.armani.com. Here, the audience is able to gain information on panellists, access the questions submitted and view summaries of past talks.
Hosted by Show Media’s CEO Peter Howarth, the next edition of the Armani Tweet Talks welcomes a distinguished international panel that includes the architect Daniel Libeskind, who has built many significant cultural, civic and residential buildings around the globe, including the Jewish Museum Berlin, the extension to the Denver Art Museum and the master plan for the redevelopment of the World Trade Center site. Joining him will be the influential Editor-in-Chief of Elle Decor Michael Boodro and author and journalist Katie Baron, who is part of the research and advisory company Stylus and is Fashion Features Editor of Volt magazine.
Giorgio Armani says, “The Armani Tweet Talks are an interesting forum for commentators to discuss issues that are important in fashion and design today. I wanted to create a platform for debate and the exchange of ideas, and I am delighted with the response we have had so far to the initiative.”
