In recent seasons many labels including Gucci, Bottega Veneta and Burberry, have opted for co-ed fashion shows. Today, Versace has announced plans to merge its men's and womenswear for the first time for it's A/W 20 collection, due to be shown in February next year, as part of Milan Fashion Week.
'Today, we live in a society in which we are all talking to one another and influencing the way we look at things. This has happened to me as well and this is why I felt the need to concentrate my creative focus and design a collection with one point of view, one vision, one world of Versace. It’s not just about inclusivity and diversity, it’s about being equal, also on the runway.' Stated Donatella Versace.
The label's S/S 20 show in September sent the internet into a frenzy when Jennifer Lopez took to the runway to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the legendary cutaway jungle print silk chiffon dress that she wore to the 42nd Grammy Awards ceremony in 2000. It looks like Versace is stirring up their followers' excitement yet again.
