He may be approaching his 80th birthday this July, but Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani has confirmed that he has not made any plans to retire as of yet. The fashion house will also soon be celebrating its 40th anniversary, and Armani says that the big milestones give him a chance to celebrate all he has achieved so far. The designer comments that he plans to continue working just as hard on his collections and he is still very much focused on his upcoming projects. He believes he has more to give to the fashion world: ''I'm about to celebrate my 80th birthday and the 40th anniversary of my brand. The double landmark is an important event that unifies my personal and professional life. I've still got a lot of energy and my projects for the future are focused on the creativity of the collections and the group's global strategy. For those who are wondering, I can confirm I have no intention of giving up. But I'm continuing to cultivate my team to make sure my business can continue in future.''

Even though he doesn't plan to retire, Giorgio reassures that he has still thought about who will succeed him when he does decide to call it quits and he has been working to make sure that the person who takes over will have a smooth transition to become head designer when the time is right:  ''I would like to reassure everyone that everything is under control. It's been years that I've been planning for my succession and I've got a loyal workforce who will take care of everything.''
