The designer for today is the wondrous Versace. Gianni Versace. This Einstein of fashion was born in 1946 and tragically murdered in 1997. He was an Italian fashion designer who founded the house of Versace – which is now reigned by his sister Donatella and his niece Allegra Versace.
First in the mid 1970s Versace started presenting his collections, and from then and till now it’s been quite a show! Take a look:
After Mr. Versace’s death, Donatella Versace has been the head designer for the label. She has, like her brother, no technical training as a fashion designer, but manages excellently with Gianni Versace’s philosophy: Don’t be afraid of breaking the rules.
Versace often choose a celebrity to represent them. Some of these have been Madonna (twice), Ashton Kutcher, Patrick Dempsey, Ian Somerhalder, Kevin Richardson and Halle Berry. It is recently reported that the new face of Versace will be January Jones.
