Whilst an exact date has yet to be announced, the show is confirmed to take place in April to coincide with the house’s reopening of its store at The Dubai Mall.
“I’m very happy to be back in Dubai after 10 years, especially on the occasion of the Expo 2020 which will place a great emphasis on the city,” Armani said in a statement. “Dubai is a luxurious and fascinating place with a soul focused on the future, always in pursuit of the imagination,” he added.
