Gianni Versace’s Secret Moments


Although Old Hollywood legends and royal princesses alike may have been revered for their enviable style and penchant for luxury, they also grappled with troubled upbringings and tumultuous relationships throughout their lifetimes. Delving past the curtain of glamorous celebrity, Secret Moments is a series humanizing the icons of yesterday.

Born in Reggio Calabria, Italy in 1946, Gianni Versace would surpass his humble beginnings as a dressmaker in his mother’s shop to become one of the most illustrious designers in fashion history. Dubbed „neo-Couture,“ Versace alternately focused on embracing the hedonist woman through sexualized shapes, something very different from the masculine tailoring and simple styles of the ’90s. A pioneer in textiles, the designer used advanced technology to develop new concepts used in luxury fashion. Versace liberated women from the confines of high fashion to embrace their most provocative self with collections that oozed sensuality, art history, decadence, and glamour. CR looks back at some of the private moments behind the fashion icon’s life.
