The luxury fashion house founded in 1978 by Gianni Versace immediately gained international fame for its unmistakable aesthetics that can be translated into cheeky Italian glamour, innate sensuality and unbridled luxury. Donatella Versace has taken up the legacy of her brother who passed away in 1997 by preserving the traditional elements and adapting them to a modern and bold style. The name Versace is identified with a philosophy of life and an attitude that celebrates the freedom to be authentic.
