After drooling over the H&M website last night, I am a little disappointed. I searched through all of the different designs of dresses, jackets, tops, vests, etc. and swooned over this leather jacket.
“Donatella will likely not approve shooting the collection on real women.”
– H&M publicist
The NY Daily News was supposed to have a shoot featuring three models, all of which are young New Yorkers. Only 1 of the 3 models got the approval. The shoot was cancelled and now the article will feature the three models in holiday cocktail attire.
The problem is, Donatella Versace specifically stated that the H&M Versace line was for the H&M consumer (likely, young, real women). Why can’t they model it? It makes me rethink whether or not I should purchase any pieces from this line. Versace is a high end fashion house, but H&M lines are supposed to make it so that something so high end can become a reality to others.
What are your thoughts?
