Donatella Versace has pleased the fans of fashion and the Versace fashion house in particular with an official statement about the return of Atelier Versace to the haute couture fashion week.
It is worth reminding that Versace presented the haute couture collection in January last year at a small presentation in Paris Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts after an eight-year pause.
We already know that the long-awaited “high” line of the fall-winter 2012-2013 season will be presented on July 1, 2012. Legendary Ritz in Paris was chosen as a venue for the fashion show. It was here that Gianni Versace demonstrated his traditional “haute couture” collections from 1990 to 1997, followed by Donatella Versace from 2000 to 2004. Atelier Versace showing will be the last large-scale event at the Ritz Hotel before its reconstruction, which is scheduled to begin on July 31.
Donatella Versace has admitted that this is an exciting moment for her. Going back to the Ritz, where she and her brother had gone through so many wonderful experiences is a thrilling moment. The closure of the Ritz Paris for two years symbolizes the end of one era and the beginning of another one. So the showing of the collections presented by the Versace fashion house will truly be a turning point in its history.
We are sure the event will prove to be truly spectacular. After all, the loyal fans of the brand are represented by such first-magnitude stars as Angelina Jolie, who ordered a wedding dress created by Atelier Versace.
