Donatella recently admitted she was terrified when it comes to unveiling her new designs.
She said: "I have to say that presenting a collection to the public has always and still does cause me a certain amount of anxiety.
"I have to say that doing it here in Beijing has been amazing because of the enthusiasm," Donatella added.
"I think the Chinese people love fashion -- that's what I can feel." Versace, whose glamorous gowns cost thousands of euros, also auctioned off a diamond watch and chance to visit the company in Milan, among other things, raising 690,000 yuan (US1,100) for survivors of May's huge earthquake in China's Sichuan province.
“It is no different at all because when I think of the collections I think of the global woman, especially the global businesswoman.

"When you have done a good job and the public appreciates it, the satisfaction you feel is utterly unique!“Chinese people like luxury brands,” added Donatella, looking resplendent in a shimmering, figure-hugging black dress and towering black stiletto shoes.Donatella said she would like to make China a regular stop on Versace’s fashion show calendar.The show was the first by the fashion label Versace in China. “What appeals to me is the energy in China, especially in this city Beijing.REUTERS/David Gray Using only Chinese models on a circular runway similar to one used at Milan events, Versace chose one of Beijing’s most fashionable new addresses for the show, the Legation Quarter, home to the U.
