Last night Donatella Versace transported the denizens of Pier 57 to the streets of Milan with her H&M for Versace event. Serving as a greatest hits mix of iconic pieces from the brand’s history, the collection represented the very best of Italian high fashion at a price point everyone can afford. The launch introduced the highly anticipated designs to an elite guest list of film stars, editors and fashion insiders. Merging runway show, pop-up shop and explosive concert into one evening is no small feat, but Donatella and the H&M team managed to wow even the most jaded industry vets. With an all-star cast featuring Natasha Poly, Lindsey Wixson and Daphne Groeneveld plus an electric set by Nicki Minaj and Prince, this was one for the record books. MDC takes you backstage and behind the scenes of the fun and fantasy.
