MILAN — Donatella Versace at last feels strong enough to talk about the good times and the bad, having finally learned how to deal with the emotions they stir.
The telling evidence is that returning to the Ritz Paris is no longer too painful for the designer to bear. Versace has decided to hold her Atelier runway show on Sunday at the prestigious hotel, a choice of great importance for her. Celebrated and opulent as the Ritz is, having lodged countless powerful and famous guests, it is also strongly linked to her late brother Gianni, who began staging his couture shows there back in 1990.
