Any profits from sales will go to children's charities the Starlight Children's Foundation and the Jet Li One Foundation for poorly youngsters.
Over 1,000 budding designers will see their designs transformed into trendy handbags and the favourite two styles will appear on the runway during a Versace catwalk show later this month after being unveiled in the October issue of Harper's Bazaar.
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.
Donatella said: "When you are successful in your life, you want to give back." Over the past few months, the 54-year-old Italian has worked with dozens of children at New York's Art Unites programme at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Each child sketched a design on a friendship theme on squares of canvas and these drawings will be transformed into a designer Versace tote bag and sold for 0.
Chief Executive Giancarlo Di Risio said earlier in the week that Versace expects to make Asia its second biggest market in terms of turnover after Europe by the end of next year.
Versace is investing 45 million euros (.09 million) to strengthen its presence in Asia and is opening 11 new stores this year.
