This year marks the 20th anniversary of the brutal murder of Gianni Versace. So his sister, Donatella Versace chose to stage her Spring 2018 show at Milan’s Triennale museum as a tribute to Gianni’s inspirations and creations, to celebrate “a genius . . . an icon . . . my brother.”

Pulling directly from archives, she wanted the focus to be on his life, not his violent end, but also his feminist leanings and the eternal relevance of his designs.

The collection featured key prints and pieces from the years 1991–95, the period that saw some of Gianni Versace’s most iconic collections: Vogue, Warhol, My Friend Elton, Icons, Baroque, Animalia, Native Americans, Tresor de la Mer, Metal Mesh, and Butterflies.

The Supermodels of the time – Naomi  Campbell,  Carla Bruni, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, and Helena Christensen – all took to the runway for the finale to the chorus of George Michael’s “Freedom! ’90.”
