Atelier Versace announced on April 24 its return to the couture catwalk for the Fall/Winter 2012 shows, with a runway presentation to take place at the Ritz Paris -- host to the late Gianni Versace’s last collection in July 1997.

The label gave its first couture presentation in eight years at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week back in January, choosing the Ecole des Beaux Arts as the setting. It will return to the capital again this July -- although this time with an even more familiar location and a catwalk show.

"It is with tremendous emotion that I return to the Ritz where I shared so many special moments with my brother," said Donatella Versace.

The Atelier Versace show is scheduled to take place July 1, with Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week running July 2-5. The iconic hotel and frequent fashion hangout will close for a major renovation project as of July 31.

"The closing of the Ritz Paris for two years represents the end of an era but also the beginning of a new one, so to be able to show Atelier Versace there one last time will be a memorable milestone," added Versace.
