Italian fashion label founded by Gianni Versace in 1978. After the designer died in 1997, direction of the fashion house was taken over by Gianni's sister, Donatella Versace.
The Gianni Versace myth originates with his fascination in classical art and architecture.
The Medusa head is a recurring theme in Versace eyewear collections. This ancient Greek symbol of the brand is also Gianni's reminder of the darker side of fashion and the danger of feminine seduction.
