Versace is back on the couture calendar for the first time in eight years. According to a one-line press release from the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, the fashion house will show on January 23 in the schedule's first time slot. Although Versace hasn't shown couture since 2004, they never discontinued it (you can see Carine visiting Donatella for a couture fitting in W's new mini-documentary The Client), choosing instead to do still-life presentations — meaning no models were used — for sittings editors only (or buyers, of course).
