Gianni Versace learned to sew at his mother's workshop in the 1950's - he designed his first gown when he was only nine years old! But it was not until he was twenty-five, in 1972, that he began to design full collections of ready-to-wear clothing. Gaining confidence from his success working for other designers, Versace launched a womenswear collection under his own name in 1978. Not confining his creative vision to clothing - Gianni saw his work as art and loved to collaborate with the worlds of ballet, opera, theater, and photography. In fact, his relationships with world class photographers like Richard Avedon helped propel Versace's vision into the mainstream. Soon he expanded into accessories and homewares.Throughout the eighties Versace went from strength to strength; winning prestigious awards and having his collections not only shown on runways and sold in boutiques - but exhibited in museums. After a single decade of leading his own brand, Versace had already become a legend. Versace worked closely with celebrities, like Elton John, and helped launch the careers of many of the 90's supermodels. But right at the height of his powers, Gianni Versace was gunned down outside his famous Miami mansion, the victim of a serial killer. Gianni's sister, Donatella would take over as Artistic Director, and his brother, Santo, would become CEO.
