Gianni Versace S.r.l. usually referred to simply as Versace, is an Italian luxury fashion company and trade name founded by Gianni Versace in 1978. No one does opulent Italian fashion quite like Versace. Bold patterns and clashing colours made Gianni Versace famous; today it’s his sister Donatella’s impeccable tailoring and glamorous evening-wear that keeps the brand in the spotlight. Versace has come to be one of the most recognisable brands in the world.
