Versace x H&M Fashion Show/After Party

My pictures from last night.

Black with gold.  
Studded leather micro minis – classic Versace

Most models wore spike heeled ankle boots or stilettos with ankle socks. The occasional bright heel – the perfect colour pop.

Bright oriental floral print dresses were toughened with leggings

A great way to update a suit in bold colours and graphic print shirt. 
If wore the collection to the event I would wear this shirt and trouser set.

Donatella Versace gestured for everyone to head to the after party
Nicki Minaj opened the party
Prince performed around 10 songs 
Prince watched the fashion show with this guitarist (her Versace jacket is incredible)
After the concert party, the shopping begun at around 1am I might add.  Racks and racks of clothes just seen on the runway earlier that evening were now available to buy. The collection will be available in stores from November 19th.
Mens brogues in pink that I was THIS close to buying….
A part of the accessories area
The mens shirt with metal collar tips I bought after the show
Above are the pictures I took of the fashion show and the concert after party.  
I don’t want to repeat what has already been said regarding those in attendance but this collaboration really brought out what Versace is known for and the show brought out all the stars to see it including Jennifer Hudson,  Jessica Alba, Prince, Nicki Minaj and countless from the fashion industry including Alexander Wang and Anna Sui who I spotted at the cocktail reception before the fashion show.  
Much of the clothes in real life feel a lot better than we tend to think for collaborations of this sort. The leathers felt soft, the chain mail dresses have a good weight and softer fabrics on the flirty pleated skirts are fluid. Many left the night early morning with 5-10 shopping bags at a time.  I left with one graphic shirt to mix into my existing wardrobe in multiple ways (although I’m sort of wishing I got just one more piece).

Thank you H&M for the invitation to an incredible event.  My feet are still recovering.
My day leading up to the experience on video to follow very soon πŸ˜‰

    Thx everyone and yes it was an exciting experience.

    Vanessa – I can’t believe it either re Prince. Ugh he’s gorgeous. no? ugh crapola. You need to get to an H&M that has em or get a friend to get you something!

    Samantha – thx I had my eye on it for weeks.

    thefashionguitar – I know what you mean but there’s been a lot of videos and coverage about it that does give a good feel of what it was like too : )

    Aimee – don’t be! it’s not like that most of the time trust me.
