Since 1997, Donatella Versace has been at the helm of the artistic direction for her family brand. She initially took over following the death of her brother, Gianni, after having prior served as the vice president of Versace. She has since seen her namesake brand continue it’s rise while holding the status as one of the premier names in fashion.
Given her influence since assuming the role of artistic director, it’s exciting to hear that she will soon be releasing a book entitled “Versace” chronicling her time in the position. Published by Rizzoli, the very illustrated work will trace her career through Donatella’s interpretation of her career and the evolution of the brand. The 336-page read will also include exclusive runway and backstage photos never-before-seen by the public.
Donatella collaborated with fashion curator and professor at the IUAV University of Venice, Maria Luisa Frisa, and director of W Magazine, Stefano Tonchi, to help encapsulate some of her most memorable moments. It also features photographs from memorable international photographers such as Irving Penn, Richard Avedon and Steven Meisel on top of exclusive pictures of famous supermodels Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and many more.
Priced at $104, “Versace” is expected to hit shelves this coming November.
