Gianni Versace was one of the most important Italian designers of the 1980's and 90's, famous for his strong colour sense and clean lines. He liked to wrap the female form, often with bias-cut clothes and fluid silks. Many of his ideas were audacious, but all were carried out to a high level of technical achievement. Versace viewed his clothes as powerful statements which were executed with unfailing confidence. In his clothes, classical historical references blend with bold geometric shapes and complex textures in brilliant colours.
