An unrivaled view of one of the world’s most illustrious fashion houses
Founded in 1978, Gianni Versace’s family-operated fashion house quickly grew into a symbol of high glamour and luxury known the world over. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s Versace’s styles were worn by iconic celebrities such as Madonna and Princess Diana. After Gianni Versace’s tragic death in 1997, his sister Donatella became artistic director of the brand, steering it into the twenty-first century and cementing its legendary status for a new generation of fans.
This magnificent celebration of more than forty years of Versace’s trendsetting creations is organized chronologically and includes both haute-couture and ready-to-wear collections. Each collection is introduced by a short text revealing its influences and is illustrated with catwalk photographs that feature clothes, details, accessories, and beauty looks showcased by models including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid, and Kaia Gerber.
With an extensive reference section, a concise history of the house, and biographical profiles of Gianni Versace and Donatella Versace, this volume provides an unrivaled view of one of the world’s most illustrious fashion houses.
