Donatella Versace Is Givenchy's Face, Because Fellow Designers Supporting Each Other Is Totally On-Trend
The fashion industry is a highly competitive business, but that doesn't mean designers can't help each other out once in awhile. Donatella Versace is the new face of Givenchy, in a super rare occurrence of a designer tapping another designer for a fashion campaign. And you know what? It's pretty freaking awesome. Looks like editorial models may be out of work soon, if this blossoms into a full-on trend.
Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci revealed the news on Instagram, posting a photo of the two colleagues captioned "so proud and honored to introduce my new ultimate icon: Donatella Versace..." You might think this is absolutely insane. After all these two are prime competitors. But why not join forces instead? They each bring such powerful talent to the table that I cannot wait to see what beautiful creations they come up with. I'm all for designers collaborating and supporting each other, it's pretty refreshing to see.
Donatella will star in the brand's Fall/Winter 2015 campaign which is called "Givenchy Family". The Versace designer is clearly thrilled about this project, as well, posting the picture on her Twitter and adding "for my talented friend Riccardo. Together we break fashion boundaries today!"
This is sure to be a huge success.
