The first Versace boutique was opened in 1978 and its popularity was immediate. Today, Versace is one of the world's leading international fashion houses. Gianni Versace redefined fashion by combining it with rock 'n' roll, art and celebrity. By merging the worlds of fashion and entertainment, his shows became pop-culture events. This iconic 1990's black & red baroque print silk number is a wonderful example of his genius. The bodice is a seductive low-cut plunge with semi-sheer sleeves. I love the hourglass belted nipped-waist! The flattering pleated swing-skirt finishing the garment off with a perfect femme-fatale vibe. "That is the key of this collection, being yourself. Don't be into trends. Don't make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live." Gianni Versace
