MILAN (Reuters Life!) - Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani said he was feeling "wonderfully well" after recovering from hepatitis.

The 75-year-old, widely regarded as the doyen of Italian fashion, revealed in May he had suffered hepatitis by poisoning.

"How am I? I'm marvelously well," Armani was quoted as saying in several newspapers on Friday 11 September.

"The readings on my liver are nearly perfect, others more than perfect, so much so I can stop taking the medicines."

Armani, often called "King Giorgio" in Italian newspapers, is known for his classic lines and muted colors in designs that have won him fans around the world.

He is due to stage fashion shows for his Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani womenswear collections this month as part of Milan fashion week.
