On the 20th anniversary of Gianni Versace’s tragic death, his sister Donatella paid tribute to his legacy by launching the Versace Tribute Collection at the Milan Fashion Week.
Drawing inspiration from Gianni’s own collections from the late ‘90s, the models strutted down the runway in vibrant colours and bold patterns that boasted just a dash of retro lines.
Five of Gianni’s greatest muses – supermodels Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Carla Bruni and Claudia Schiffer – were also on hand to mark the occasion.
Bedecked in shimmering gold floor-length gowns, they joined Donatella Versace for the finale, walking down the runway with George Michael’s Freedom playing in the background.
Donatella Versace said, “This collection is a tribute to the life and works of Gianni. We pay homage to not only his artistic genius but to who he was as a man, and above all, as my brother.”
