Giorgio Armani: Women still need fashion to boost their feeling

Los Angeles: Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani says women like to wear stylish clothes because it makes them feel better about themselves. The 78-year old menswear designer admits females no longer have to wear powerful-looking clothes to earn respect but still like to dress stylishly to boost their everyday confidence, reported Contactmusic.

"[Women] have edged out their standing in the world. Today, they don't have to wear a suit jacket to prove their authority. But still women need fashion to boost their feeling, to lift them into a higher sphere." said Armani.

After a hugely successful fashion career, Armani admits he's very lonely in his personal life because he gave up everything for his work.

He said, "People think, I don't have any time to meet them because I am too busy. But in the evening I'm at home sitting with my two cats in front of the TV. And nobody calls me."
