Roberta Armani’s first high profile presence at official Armani event

Giorgio Armani’s niece, Roberta Armani attended this week the star studded inauguration event of the Emporio Armani store in Barcelona. The store which was opened in August is siuated on Barcelona’s leading highstreet Passeig de Gracia.

The inauguration event in Barcelona was attended by tennis superstar Rafael Nadal, the brand ambassador of the Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans lines. It is the first high profile event of Armani which is attended by Mr Armani’s niece, Roberta Armani, who has maintained a low profile within the group. Her presence at the Barcelona event is of great significance given the ongoing rumours about Giorgio Armani’s health, 77 years old, who despite having no direct heirs, has consistently denied retiring or selling his company.
