Yes, we’re having another conversation about Versace’s H & M collection. If people were over the Moon with enthusiasm before the collection landed, excited beyond belief when the fashion show took place, it’s time for them to fall flat on their feet again.
Donatella Versace, the creative force behind Versace may have worked with the world’s most popular fast fashion label, but that doesn’t necessarily mean she shares the same views ad the democratic high street fashion brand. Some rumors (well, actually a bit more than rumors, but let’s call it that and hope there’s still a slight chance for them to be inaccurate) circulate, saying that there was this special campaign in place for Versace H & M collection, involving normal New York women called “Model New Yorkers”.
The initiative was supposed to highlight women from New York wearing pieces from the above mentioned collection. The operation, however, hit a wall of rejection as Donatella didn’t greenlight the photos. Why, you may ask? Because the women don’t fit Versace’s branding! Donatella, honey, what did you expect signing on with H & M? The average Hennes and Mauritz customer has almost nothing to do with your beloved tall, platinum blonde, skinny young women! Ah, designers! Whoever said fashion people are nasty?
