Since I was a kid, I’ve always loved anything that’s in bright vivid colors and growing up in the 80s and 90s, when “More is more” very much the mantra in the fashion scene and glammed-up supermodels reigned supreme, of course Gianni Versace was one of the designer who inspired me to perused fashion design as an carrier.
I am sure all of the fashonistas remembered the super talented designer Gianni Versace! Whom dominated the late 80s and early 90s fashion world by storm with his vibrant, colorful & daring designs that has set himself apart from the rest of the designers & lured us into his fashion fantasy world till he was tragically allegedly killed by his casual encounter Andrew Cunanan.
After Gianni’s death, his sister Donatella Versace had shown strong courage to take over this fashion empire and continued his late brother’s legacy and successfully brought the company to another level of glamour & style that we all love today!
