What happened when Versus Versace took over London

Anthony Vaccarello stormed the city with a top secret performance event as Donatella got down on the dancefloor

When Anthony Vaccarello first met Donatella Versace, she knew he was the one. “I’ve followed Anthony’s work from his very first collection,” she said of Versus Versace's new creative director. “As soon as I met him I realised immediately he was the one, he gets it, his talent screams Versus Versace.”

So the first Versus outing in London yesterday was always going to be something special. That meant Vaccarello and Donatella both flew over the give the city an exclusive first look at his AW15 collection. Guests at the Old Brewery Building were treated to ceiling-to-floor livestreamed projections of the models wearing the new looks. Thanks to the "See Now-Buy Now-Wear Now" feature of the presentation, the collection was immediately available to purchase once people had their fill gawping at the super-sized images on the walls.

Emerging glitch noise band Zibra and stadium rock hopefuls Nothing But Thieves took to the stage shortly after, clad in pieces from the show, before DJs Chelsea Leyland and Roman Kemp took to the decks. If you've ever wanted to see Donatella get down in an East London warehouse, trust us when we say that she has more moves than we could muster on a Thursday night.
