Are you ready for the Versace x H&M Collaboration? I am. The collection is going to be released on November 17 in various markets around the world. If you live in the USA or Canada, it’s going to be available on November 19.
For two days, starting today October 25, the iconic Donatella Versace will answer select questions submitted through Twitter from fans. Ask Donatella anything about the upcoming collaboration with H&M with the hashtag #askdonatella.
I rushed straight to Via Gesu after the stunning Prada show earlier this evening. Donatella invited me for a casual meet. I thought it was very sweet and kind of her to invite me to their rehearsal, a full twenty four hours before the show. Models Siri Tollerod and Lindsey Wixson were also there, walking the long, lighted runway in these amazing, skyscraper platform shoes. Versace shows are usually high-energy, with gorgeous girls sashaying to pumping music. Donatella told me there are going to be forty-plus looks tomorrow and she liked the idea of bringing big hair back after several seasons of sleek, straight hair.
In other news, my bf arrived in Milan this afternoon. He, too, met the iconic Donatella. I don’t usually tag him along to my business affairs but I needed someone to capture a photo of me and Ms. Versace.
Are you excited for the Versace show tomorrow night? I am.
Backstage at Versace Fall Winter 2011: Lindsey Wixson
Lovely chatting to Lindsey Wixson backstage at Versace. She’s one of my favourite models of the moment. She’s major!
Versace gave a few of us bloggers flip cams to take footage at the show. I was the only blogger backstage. I almost got kicked out until one of the Italian PR ladies saved me. In any case, I have tons of clips here. I hope my internet connection cooperates with me.
