Buon Giorno a tutti!!
Was’n it amazing the Miss Mitranda Malaga Film Festival red Carpet? I love it!! and what about Miss Lopez always working to improve the blog? she’s incredible!!
Today I’ll remember you the incredible Versace spring summer 2011 collection and talk a little bit about the designer to learn who the masters are.
Donatella Versace is an Italian fashion designer, as was her brother Gianni Versace, the founder of the Versace clothing brand. She actually is Vice-President of the Versace Group and Chief Designer of the fashion line, owns 20 percent of the entire stock market assets of Versace. Her brother, Santo Versace, owns 30 percent and Donatella’s daughter Allegra Versace inherited 50% of the company stock after Gianni Versace died.
Donatella was born in the Italian city of Reggio di Calabria, the youngest of four children in her family. Her father was a personal financier to the Italian aristocracy. In the mid 1970s, Donatella followed her older brother, Giovanni (“Gianni”), to pursue knitwear design in Florence, Italy. Donatella had planned to work for her brother as Public Relations, but she was more valuable to Gianni as a “muse and critic,” in 80’s Gianni launched a perfume dedicated to her, Blonde, and gave her her own diffusion label, Versus, which remains a well-known Versace inner line.
Donatella is the first to use notable celebrities to broadcast her clothing into the world on the catwalk and other public media such as advertisements, instead of using unknown models. Donatella soon proved to be the public relations giant within the Versace label and spread its name throughout Europe and most of the United States. Donatella chose to place some of her good famous friends, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Christina Aguilera, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Demi Moore, in high esteem in the Versace advertising sector, making them and other A-List celebrities such as Beyonce and January Jones the persona and image of Versace. Her popularity grew when she designed the famous Versace Green Dress, also known as the Jungle-Dress, which was worn by Jennifer Lopez at the Grammys in 2000.
She now oversees the production of a dozen collections each year. Versus – which was handed to her by her brother – has been successful for more than a decade. Celebrities love her and she has a loyal following, from Elizabeth Hurley to Courtney Love.
In this Spring Summer collection 2011 you can find Greek symbols, solid strong colors and new fantasies that characterize it, gorgeous shoes and accessories. Simple, feminine and innovative.- I would love to have it all – with the yet classic futuristic retro taste typical on Versace’s style, models walk on the squared white rectangle as in a spaceship full of well-dressed woman ready for the future.
Stay ready for the future, enjoy Versace’s collection for this summer and feel-good womanhood!!
