Berlin celebrates fashion legend Versace
In an exhibition in Berlin legend Versace celebrated its 40th anniversary. Versace’s fashion in the 1980s was a combination of elegant and conservative and he tried out new styles in the 90s. He brought colour into his collections unlike anyone else, letting his creations explode with brightness.
He was one of the greatest fashion designers of the last century: Giovanni Maria Versace, better known as Gianni Versace — or simply Versace. He created gowns for Princess Diana and Sting’s wedding tuxedo, among the many other clothes he designed for the rich and famous. With the help of his sister Donatella, Versace made his fashion house into a unique international brand. He led the glamorous life of a pop star, becoming the envy of many around the world. Yet his life ended tragically — in July 1997 he was murdered outside his villa in Miami.
