The Kronprinzenpalais in Berlin’s Unter Den Linden is home to an iconic collection of Gianni Versace’s designs in an exhibition that stands as an ode to the legendary fashion powerhouse 20 years after his death.
“Berlin is a place of innovation, Gianni Versace goes well with this city, because he was always ahead of its time. He was bold, a visionary,” said exhibition curator Sabina Albano to Tagesspiegel.
The exhibition takes places as the brand celebrates its 40th anniversary of its launch. The city of Lippstadt, Germany, is where Versace held his first fashion show in 1978.
Visitors can see designs by Versace worn and made famous by celebrities from 1978-1997 in three themed rooms – one of which is dedicated to his signature black and gold designs.
