Versace is known as being luxurious, and they put on a fancy glamorous fashion show with Italian luxury near Beijing’s central Tiananmen Square, all while raising more than $100,000 for charity. "What appeals to me is the energy in China, especially in this city Beijing. There are a lot of young people, creative people, a lot of art -- it's very inspiring," said design head and vice president Donatella Versace.
Using the country’s own models, they strutted the stunning clothing on a circular runway. The Chinese surrounding made the clothing feel all that more lavishing. Although the show had already previously debuted in Milan, Versace showed off the spring and summer collection for 2009. Donatella said she would like to make China a regular stop on Versace's fashion show calendar.
