Designer Crochet: Versace

Did you see the new designer crochet tool I posted? Visit it, hit “start styling” and put together outfits using pieces from previous Designer Crochet posts to create a display for the gallery.

Okay, next up on the list of designers in The Designer Crochet Project is Versace. Gianni Versace is one of the designers from Simone Werle’s 50 Fashion Designers You Should Know that I actually know a lot about. However, I don’t actually know if there’s any crochet in the Versace line. Let’s take a look …

About Fashion Designer Gianni Versace

Gianni Versace was a fashion designer who embraced over-the-top supersexy designs. His designs are glamorously extravagant. He opened his first boutique in Italy in 1978. He won the American Fashion Oscar in 1993. In 1997 Versace was murdered and the line was passed on to his his sister Donatella, his brother and his niece. Today there are an array of lines under the Versace name include Versace Couture and Versace Jeans and Versus.
