His first was shown in London in 2006, and ever since, Giorgio Armani’s ‘One Night Only’ extravaganzas and the ‘Eccentrico’ exhibitions that follow immediately after have been mammoth hits. Hosting the fashion elite as well as hot-right-now celebs the shows are a celebration of Mr. Armani’s work, while the exhibitions interpret his fashion through the decades: “An eccentric streak has always run parallel to a more sober and strict aspect,” says the designer. “I don’t like clichés, and this exhibition does away with quite a lot of them.” BAZAAR presents some of the most memorable ‘One Night Only’ events around the world.
