Giorgio Armani: ‘I Sacrificed My Life’ For Fashion

Giorgio Armani opened up to Elle UK in their September issue about what it takes to be a true fashion mogul, and what he had to say was surprisingly poignant.

The 78-year-old designer has been dodging questions about retiring for years now, and this is all he had to say about it:

“No. Quitting. No.”

But this is what really pulls at our heartstrings. When asked about what it took to get where he is and what it is like to live his life, Armani said:

“Life. I have sacrificed life. The life of a young man when I first started out and the life of a grown man at the age I am now.”

Apparently that’s what it takes to make the beautiful collections that he does. And good for Armani for saying he’ll never quit! Age ain’t nothin’ but a number, right?
