To celebrate the launch of Versace for H&M, top models Abbey Lee Kershaw, Daphne G, Natasha Poly, Sean O’pry and Lindsay Wixson hit the catwalk last night in an exclusive show in New York.
In a specially designed building on the Hudson River, Versace’s iconic collection for H&M was shown alongside some special pieces created just for the event.
Uma Thurman, Blake Lively, Chace Crawford, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Hudson and Selma Blair were among the guests who joined Donatella Versace and H&M for the show, which was followed by an after party featuring exclusive performances by Prince and Nicki Minaj.
“It was the perfect evening, so glamorous and special. I loved celebrating the launch of Versace for H&M here in New York, an iconic city in which to showcase this iconic collection. Now I cannot wait for it to finally reach stores and be available to the world,” said Donatella Versace.
“Donatella Versace has taken us at H&M on an incredible journey since she began designing the collection for us earlier this year, and last night’s fashion event was the perfect culmination. She has given us the essence of the Versace brand, and last night that came to life with a magical catwalk show that we’ll never forget,” Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor at H&M, added.
The Versace for H&M collection goes on sale at around 300 stores worldwide and online on November 17, and the models at Talent Management can’t wait!
