Donatella Versace Will Allow You to Be Her Intern For $20,000
Bidding on fashion internships for charity was hilarious when Anna Wintour put up a one-week Vogue internship for auction (it’s currently at $13,000) mostly because, well, it’s Anna Wintour, the most powerful person in the fashion industry and she can damn well do whatever she pleases.
But now Donatella Versace’s in on the game, auctioning off a semester-long internship at the Versace office in New York-a prize package that comes complete with two Versus fashion show tickets, a meet-and-greet with Donatella herself, an autographed T-shirt, and autographed perfume bottle.
What with all the hullabaloo over unpaid internships run amok in the fashion industry, not to mention how competitive it is to get good, legitimate internships in fashion, it seems bizarre to be able to buy yourself work experience and pass it off as charity.
