Versace is an exclusive and very youthful Italian fashion house founded by Gianni Versace. After many successful years of managing the company, Gianni was murdered in Miami in 1997. The running of the brand was taken over by Gianni's longtime muse and sister Donatella, who manages the firm with Gianni's elder brother, Santo. Gianni also left 50% ownership of the firm to Allegra, Donatella's daughter.
Versace experienced immediate success after the launch of their first fashion collection in 1978, and many A-list celebrities, including Elton John, Madonna, Ashton Kutcher, Britney Spears, and Halle Berry, are faithful fans of their clothing. The brand's first fragrance, Gianni Versace for Women, was launched at the beginning of the 80's, and since then Versace has shone like a diamond in the beauty world's sky. Many other fantastic fragrances such as Crystal Noir, Yellow Diamond, Man Eau Fraiche and Bright Crystal have remained bestsellers for years.
