Founded by Gianni Versace, the remarkable fashion house “Versace” has been flaring with class and elegance from its line of Alta Moda dresses. Extraordinary supermodels emerged between the 1980s and 1990s from Versace’s fashion show–as somewhat giving birth to the ultimate supermodels in the fashion world, including Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell.
Versace was also known for its Medusa-head and the Greek Cipher Trademark, which continues to boast its vivacious sequences of print, embroidery, and heavy embellishment. Adorned and patronized by most celebrities and notable figures in the industry such as Jennifer Lopez, Elton John, Madonna, Elizabeth Hurley, Prince, and Diana, Princess of Wales.
It was a grievous moment for everyone after hearing Gianni Versace’s death shortly after his Autumn/Winter 1997 Haute couture collection in Paris. Donatella Versace, his sister, then assumed responsibility, becoming the creative director of the Versace Group.
In the year 2017, the “Fashion Icon” award was given to Versace by the British Fashion Council’s Fashion Awards. In the following years, additional awards came in, such as the CFDA’s International Award, Designer of the Year by British GQ and GQ China, Fashion Icon Award by GQ Berlin, and a CNMI award in recognition of sustainability.
Versace label speaks of classicism and incredible fashion. As they progressed, the remarkable fashion label diversified into the field of cosmetics, interior goods, and luxury hotels.
