Giorgio Armani has hit out at Anna Wintour.

The 79-year-old designer has subtly slammed the Vogue editor-in-chief after she missed his autumn/winter 2014 show at Milan Fashion Week and chose to fly to France for Paris Fashion Week instead.

Speaking at a post-show press conference, he said: "There are some who prefer to snub the Giorgio Armani show and go to Paris... She took an airplane, dumped Mr. Armani and went to Paris."

However, a representative for Anna claims she had no choice but to leave for Paris Fashion Week, which kicks off on Tuesday, and insists she has the "greatest respect" for the designer.

The representative told WWD: "Anna has the greatest respect for Giorgio Armani and everything he has done for Italy and fashion worldwide. Unfortunately, with the fashion calendar now running for more than a month, there are some shows that Anna is not able to attend."

Armani then went on to criticise the organisers of Milan Fashion Week, Italian Fashion Chamber, for making the final day of the show an "empty one".

According to the Telegraph newspaper, he said: "When we decided to show the last day, other big brands were involved. But currently this is an empty day."
