Do you love luxury fashion?

The Versace book was written by Donatella Versace with Maria Luisa Frisa and Stefano Tonchi. This highly intimate visual history of this world famous fashion empire is going to be on all fashionista's wish list.


This hardcover tome is packed with stunning black and white, and full colour photographs giving the readers a glimpse at the world of fashion. It's amazing to see how couture has changed and evolved over the years. Almost every page is filled with gorgeous models or famous celebrities wearing the designs of the day.


Donatella took over the Italian family-run business in 1997 and successfully cemented Versace as the go-to label for many A-list celebrities. Many of the photographs are from exclusive contemporary and archival sources from the runway to backstage. Some of the arresting photographs were captured by Richard Avedon, Irving Penn and Steven Meisel. The fashion is featured on the original supermodels Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista, as well as many other famous people and Hollywood elite you'll enjoy spotting.

Versace is available in hardcover from your favourite bookseller.
