When in 1997 Donatella Versace took over the reigns of the fashion house after her brother’s sudden death, the brand was literally led from one strength to another. Since then, the woman has to lead to the creations of new trends- if not for Donatella and the Versace Green Dress, what would Jennifer Lopez have worn for the famous Grammys in 2000? She also pursued the idea of creating super models- highly recognisable, individual girls who take the fashion world by storm.
To Donatella, we owe the amazing array of dresses worn by the most characteristic and recognised of stars- Beyonce, Madonna, Christina Aguilera all love the bright and sparkly designs of the house of Versace which attract magpie fashionistas like diamonds.
For yet another strength- creating the collaboration between Versace and the high street clothing giant H&M, we thank Donatella and hope for more in the future.
