Versace Medusa Coaster

By: Sanjeevkumar

Gianni created a fashion dynasty imprinted with a Versace vision. Every inch of his home, Casa Casuarina, an opulent, ocean-fronted Miami mansion, was covered in the Versace Medusa head. His sister Donatella Versace, who was famously also his muse, took over the fashion house - continuing to make impeccably constructed dresses for glamazons.

Gianni Versace was credited with creating the supermodel by agreeing to pay high sums to Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington. He was taught by his dressmaker mother in Calabria, Italy and he made his first dress aged nine in 1955.

He presented his first Gianni Versace collection in 1978, aged 32. In 1999 he presented his first haute couture collection. He also designed costumes for theatre, opera and ballet.

had an eye for talent and worked with top photographers such as Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Bruce Weber and Steven Meisel, and his favourite - Richard Avedon. In October 2002, he was honoured with a retrospective of his work at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The exhibition featured 138 of his most famous designs, as well as five by his sister Donatella.
