My old roommate Kingsley used to work at Versace, which is why I was invited to the Versus Versace event last May, where they unveiled the collection by J.W. Anderson.
It was such a crazy night at the 69th Regiment Armory. Not only did I get a glimpse of many celebrities, but I also got to see Donatella Versace and J.W. Anderson in person.
It was a very special event because it was something between a fashion show and a presentation. There was a giant glass room in the middle of the armory, and they unveiled Donatella and J.W. inside prepping the models for the show, dressing and styling them. It was a very different and interesting concept. Two runways extended from the right and the left of the glass room and they were where the models eventually came out from.
There were DJs and musicians and the whole venue turned into a big party -- even the models changed clothes and were dancing with everyone.
Thanks to Kingsley, I got a glimpse of the world of Versace for one night -- with Ms. Donatella Versace herself.
