Above: The Versace Tribute Collection – Spring Summer 2018.
“This collection is a Tribute to the life and works of Gianni. We pay homage to not only his artistic genius but to who he was as a man, and above all, as my brother. Gianni was an exceptional person for how he celebrated each day as though it were extraordinary and for how he always approached life with a smile on his lips. Each year Gianni lived, he lived to its fullest: throughout his career, he created collections that to this day are considered a cultural point of reference and inspiration to many. It would be impossible to commemorate Gianni’s entire world in a single collection, therefore, I have decided to honor his legacy with his beloved prints and dazzling metal mesh. This collection is for you, Gianni.” Donatella Versace
Gianni Versace (December 2, 1946 – July 15, 1997) was an Italian fashion designer and founder of Versace, an international fashion house, which produces accessories, fragrances, makeup, home furnishings, and most importantly, clothes for women. Gianni Versace also designed costumes for the theater and films. As a friend of Eric Clapton, Diana (Princess of Wales), fashion model Naomi Campbell, Duran Duran, Madonna, Elton John, Cher, Sting, and many other famous celebrities, Gianni Versace was one of the first designers to link fashion to the music world. Versace was murdered outside his Miami Beach home at the age of 50.
“Supermodels Candice Swanepoel, Caroline Trentini, Doutzen Kroes, Anja Rubik, Natasha Poly, and a few of the legendary supermodels from the 1990’s such as Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer made this an incredibly beautiful fashion show. In fact, these models ruled the fashion runway during this beautiful fashion show in memory of Gianni Versace.”
