Lady Helen Taylor and Giorgio Armani End Partnership
For the past 17 years, Lady Helen Taylor has been serving as the fashion ambassador and muse to designer Giorgio Armani. The partnership began in 1992, when Armani designed a wedding outfit for the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Kent, who was then known as Lady Helen Windsor. In addition to working as a fashion ambassador, Lady Helen was a constant presence at the many Armani runway shows over the years.
The partnership has not ended due to any conflict or bad feelings between the royal and the designer. Like many other things, it has been affected by the global recession, and it has become increasingly difficult for Armani to sustain the costs of having a fashion ambassador, according to a recent article from Fashion United. Unfortunately, even royalty and top fashion designers are not immune to the effects of the financial crisis.
Armani was not the only company that Lady Helen has worked for as an ambassador. In the past, she has worked with the world-famous jewelry company, Bulgari.
