David Challanger wrote an article for CNN talking about a regular day in Giorgio Armani’s busy life.
In the interview, Armani confesses that if it wouldn’t have discovered his passion for fashion, he would now be known as Dr. Armani. He started medical school, but things turned out differently for him.
A typical day in Armani’s life starts at 7 AM, with a 90 minutes workout.
“I exercise for 90 minutes with a personal trainer — 45 minutes of aerobics and 45 minutes of weights. It’s become a daily ritual, and there’s no doubt it helps my mind as well as my body,” Armani says.
Then he meets his associates to discuss business. He takes the most important decisions in his fashion empire, but he’s gathered a terrific management team to keep much of the less important stuff under control.
With the launch of the new charitable Product(RED) collection, he allocates a lot of his time to it.
“This new project is a pioneering global business initiative launched by Bobby Shriver and Bono, which aims to help fight AIDS in Africa. I think it’s a powerful idea to harness the might of global brands for goodwill,” he says proudly.
