The Kronprinzenpalais, in Berlin, will turn into Gianni’s world for almost a quarter of a year: culture, fashion, music, inspiration. It had to be here, the exhibition of one of the greatest designers of all times. And it had to be this year, after the touching and wonderful moment honouring him, presented by Donatella Versace, at Milan Fashion Week in the fall.
Gianni Versace very first fashion show was organised in 1978 in the small city of Lippstadt. In 1994 Gianni had his first exhibition in Berlin and was so fascinated, that he planned to come back. He wasn’t, but after 40 years after he founded his brand in 1978, assembled by private collectors all over the world, a beautiful exhibition in his memory was organised at Berlin.
Gianni Versace – Retrospective will be held at Kronprinzenpalais (Palace of the Crown Prince) at Berlin’s Boulevard Unter den Linden (www.retrospective-gianniversace.com: firstname.lastname@example.org) between 30th January to 14th April 2018.
Gianni Versace was known fort he enactment of his life and work. By that he created in a very short time a very strong and memorable brand. The collaboration with the times bespoken photographers as Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon, Bruce Weber, Peter Lindbergh created a vibrant and intense iconic image still remembered today.
