Giorgio Armani became Special Ambassador for Responsible Tourism
Giorgio Armani was appointed Special Ambassador for Responsible Tourism of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).
In a statement, the UNWTO called Armani "a global benchmark for timeless design and creativity," as well as a symbol of "deep commitment to social responsibility and respect for the environment." The UNWTO also noted the principles of the Armani brand, which are built on “respect for resources and the realization that the future of future generations depends on today's choice.”
Giorgio Armani thanked the organization for the trust placed in him. “It was the sense of responsibility for our society that helped my country overcome this terrible pandemic, and it was this that made me play a small role in helping those involved in the fight against the virus and the economic problems that it created,” Armani said.
In March, the Armani Group converted all of its Italian factories to produce disposable medical clothing for the individual protection of coronavirus medical workers.
The designer donated almost two million euros to support hospitals in the regions of Italy, the most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, in March Armani published an appeal to doctors in 60 Italian publications.
Recall Tiffany & Co. will give $ 2 million to support victims of COVID-19, especially women and black people.
