Italian luxury brand Versace proudly announces its support for the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) during Pride Month. Donatella Versace, Creative Director of Versace, and the Versace House have been longstanding advocates of the foundation since its inception in 1992. The brand firmly believes in EJAF’s mission to foster a more compassionate and accepting world by extending help to those in need. As part of their commitment, a percentage of sales from Versace’s coveted Greca Goddess mini bag in powder blush pink will be donated to the Elton John AIDS Foundation throughout June.
The initiative is significant, as the chosen color represents sexuality and sexual freedom, resonating with the LGBTQIA+ Pride flag. Pride Month is a momentous occasion, and Donatella Versace expresses her deep pride in the LGBTQIA+ community and her role as an ally. She is thrilled to support her friend Elton John and his foundation, emphasizing the collective effort required to end AIDS by 2030. The partnership between Versace and the Elton John AIDS Foundation has been enduring, with the fashion house consistently championing the foundation’s exceptional work.
Versace is renowned worldwide for its fusion of culture, Italian luxury, and iconic designs. The brand’s commitment to classical arts and myth, symbolized by elements like the Medusa head and Greca motif, seamlessly intertwines with a contemporary and empowering aesthetic. The Versace lifestyle encompasses an array of offerings, including ready-to-wear, bags and accessories, jewelry, eyewear, fragrances, watches, Atelier Versace haute couture, and home furnishings. The brand operates under the umbrella of Capri Holdings Limited, a global fashion luxury group.
