As one of the few remaining family-run fashion houses, Versace’s flamboyant, colourful, figure-hugging creations are adored the world over.
Versace was founded in 1978 by the late Gianni Versace in Milan. After early success, Gianni Versace called on his sister Donatella, to join him as an advisory eye and assist in developing the brand. The two worked together for most of the 1980’s and 1990’s, forming a highly fashionable team.
While Gianni Versace grew the fashion empire, Donatella Versace focused on their striking advertising campaigns; established the children’s line Young Versace; and worked as head designer on the diffusion label Versus. When Gianni Versace was killed on July 15, 1997; Donatella Versace took the reins as Creative Director. Since then, the Versace aesthetic has shifted it’s focus to encompass both Gianni Versace’s High Italian Glamour with her own rock’n’roll sensibility.

Versace Fall 2011
The Fall 2011 collection was classic, strong and sexy – the essence of Versace! Coats and jackets had a divine distinct military edge, while python skin coiled around the body in snake like strands and graphic elements from the house’s archives – a vine and flower – made for dramatic simplicity.

I love those coloured swirls. I always associate Versace with being quite old fashioned but these designs are fab.
