Designer Donatella Versace is auctioning an internship at her New York office.

The highest bidder will not only work from the Versace office, but also get to visit a Donatella Versace and Christopher Kane show in Milan, at which the intern will get the opportunity to meet with Donatella, as well as receive a signed perfume bottle and T-shirt, reports.

The fashion icon has joined a charity auction for non-profit organisation, The Art of Elysium, and is offering a position at the fashion house which she co-founded. Donatella recently talked about how the current difficult economic climate leads more people to be innovative.

“You would say that when there is less money around everything becomes dull, but this means you kill the economy. Everything has to be more wearable, but more creative,” the website quoted her as saying.

“Less evening dresses maybe and more day clothes but recognisable with a strong personality.”

The auction is valued at $20,000 and ends May 13.
