Most of the major fashion PR boutiques have elected to remain wisely silent on whether they would consider hiring the 19-year-old Francesca.
Even Versace's own account team at Aurelia PR refused to comment.
But there's hope for young Francesca yet. Sam Fearn, managing partner at fashion agency Fearnhurst PR - which works for clients including Kenneth Cole - says: 'We'd be keen to hire her. PR is a skill of communication and being able to visualise a story - that doesn't mean you need to be able to design a collection'. Watch this space for news of Francesca's next move.
