Versace Pre Fall 2019 collection is colorful, fun, exciting and as always – just straight fabulous to work day. Donatella Francesca Versace is an Italian fashion designer and current vice president of the Versace Group, as well as its chief designer.
Donatella followed her older brother, Giovanni (“Gianni”), to pursue knitwear design in Florence, Italy. She had planned to work for her brother in the public relations department, but was more valuable to him as a “muse and critic”, according to her during an interview with Vogue. Through her closeness to her brother’s enterprises, she entered the fashion world.
A year and three days after Gianni’s death on 15 July 1997, Donatella Versace mounted her first couture show for the Versace Atelier at the Hôtel Ritz Paris. She built her runway over the hotel’s swimming pool, as her brother had done every season, though this time using sheer glass. She now oversees the production of a dozen collections each year, though these days she is just as famous for her celebrity entourage and parties whose regular guests include Sir Elton John, Liz Hurley, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Kate Moss – Link into the Versace world here at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donatella_Versace
