Versace by Daniel K. Davis

For two decades, Gianni Versace created some of the most eye-catching and controversial designs in fashion. From his beginnings in his seamstress mother's workshop in Reggio di Calabria, Italy, to his extravagant rock-and-roll-themed runway shows, Versace saw fashion as a means of expressing freedom and individuality. These ideals along with his creativity and craftsmanship helped build the Versace house into one of the industry's elite brands. But when Gianni's life was cut short by a serial killer in 1997, his younger sister Donatella found herself unexpectedly heading up their billion-dollar empire. Though she learned at Gianni's side throughout the years and was already a designer in her own right, many questioned whether Donatella Versace would be able to carry on her brother's legacy. In a tale of tragedy, turmoil, and addiction, Donatella has had to fight battles in both her business life and her personal life, with the future of the House of Versace at stake. In Versace, read the storied history about this esteemed house of fashion, from the triumphs to the devastating losses to the rebuilding of a brand.
