Gianni Versace created a fashion house that- as British Vogue declared- defined late twentieth-century glamour- invented the supermodel and sanctioned in the public consciousness a supremely self-assured feminine sexuality. His debut line in 1978 was instantly successful; in the Eighties- his extravagant designs and his vision of powerful women defined the era- and culminated in the Nineties with the supermodel phenomenon - his designs worn by those glamazons who featured on every Vogue cover. Vogue on Gianni Versace explores how his childhood spent in his mothers dressmakers shops- his Italian hometown of Reggio Calabria- and his family- particularly his younger sister- Donatella- influenced not only the designer he became - the insistent sensuality- vivid colours- classical motifs- clashing prints and daring cuts - but also the way he constructed his business: family first. The book reveals how the more brazen elements of his design - the jewelled embroidery- the bondage straps- the safety-pin gowns - were predicated on supremely skilled tailoring- deft use of materials and innovative techniques.Alongside are Vogues eye-witness accounts of the Versace lifestyle - the palazzos and parties- the art- the celebrity friends. Vogue on Gianni Versace is a celebration of a designer and a house that- in only 19 years- came to dominate the catwalk and the red carpet.... Please click here to ask a question
