Armani supports the National Art School


You don’t have to know Georgio Armani to know that he likes art.

So it comes as no surprise that this year, Emporio Armani in Australia has taken it under its figurative wing and decided to support and sponsor the National Art School’s Postgraduate students and their exhibitions. It’s a joining of forces based on a mutual commitment to creativity and excellence and a devotion to artistic and cultural development.

There’s no lying that art as a career choice is for the privileged few, who can afford the lifestyle it entails and the thrive off the creative energies that stem from its practise. For Armani to show its support to a bunch of graduating students who worked tirelessly over a number of years in the Master of Fine Art and Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) programs, means the world to not only those students, but the practise of art itself.

Fashion and art go quite hand-in-hand, and it’s obvious that no one brand knows this more than Emporio Armani, who uses so much art in the creation and development of the most basic of essentials to the most ostentatious of couture.

Probably one of the most exciting and unique aspects of Emporio Armani’s sponsorship of the graduate showcase is that opportunity for a selected graduate to travel to Milan to develop new work for the National Art School as an artist-in-residence. The completed work then becomes the property of Armani, leading to exposure and profile opportunities for the artist no doubt, and a fruitful career with a colourful beginning.

Shortlisted for the opportunity are five artists whose eye for creativity and communication through their created pieces is something to be seen.

Emporio Armani hosted a small gathering in Melbourne recently to display the works of some exhibiting artists. Have a peek below…
