Designer File: Versace
Italian brand Versace is renowned for its sexy, more-is-more glamour, garnering a reputation as one of the most beloved fashion houses in the world.
The first Versace boutique was opened in Milan‘s iconic Via della Spiga in 1978 by founder Gianni Versace, to immediate acclaim. The designer fast became a prominent industry figure, and his brand became known across the globe for its alluringly feminine aesthetic; think eye-popping cocktail dresses, glittering jewellery, candy-coloured accessories and goddess gowns.
After Gianni’s tragic murder in 1997, his sister Donatella Versace took charge, continuing to perfect the label’s boldy seductive style, one which continues to grow from strength to strength today.
The house was one of the very first to feature the legendary supermodels of the ‘90s in their seasonal campaigns. Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, Helena Christensen, Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell (just to name a few) have each modeled Versace’s siren-like designs.
A host of the world’s most recognised faces have also stepped up to endorse the label, reflecting Versace’s reputation and influence as one of the most established fashion houses in the world. Past Versace faces have included the likes of Madonna, Halle Berry, Demi Moore, Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Bon Jovi.
