Donnatella Versace is styled by Clément Ghys for 'Donatella Versace, the glamorous legacy' (le glamour en héritage), lensed by Tom Ordoyno for M Le Magazine du Mode' March 16, 2018. Read the translated interview.

Not mentioned in this interview is this week's decision by the Versace group, announced in The Economist's 1843 Magazine, that one of fashion's most glam brands will no longer use real furs in its products. Donatella's announcement in 'Versace: The Resurrection" came at a time when the Versace website is still promoting "fur-embellished coats that turn heads". 

According to The Guardian, “Versace is a massively influential luxury brand that symbolises excess and glamour, and so its decision to stop using fur shows that compassionate fashion has never been more on trend,” said Claire Bass, executive director of HSI’s (Humane Society International) UK arm.

The International Fur Federation said it was “disappointed” by the decision. CEO Mark Oaten, argues that fur is sustainable and eco-friendly, a "natural and responsible choice for designers and consumers". Oaten adds "With growing concern about the environment and plastics in fashion, I truly believe fur is the natural and responsible choice for designers and consumers.”
