Luxury fashion company Gianni Versace S.p.A., often referred to solely as Versace, was founded in 1978 by Gianni Versace, who controlled all aspects of the brand during his life and career, from designing to retailing to marketing. Over time, Versace expanded to incorporate accessories, décor, children’s fashion, jewellery and more. Distinguished by its bold prints and vibrant colours, Versace lays claim to many secondary lines, such as Atelier Versace, Versus Versace and Versace Jeans, and frequently collaborates with top artists and designers.
