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.

All sources seem to say that this Versace dress is crochet cotton with silk … it doesn’t look crochet to me, though. What do you think? (via coolspotters)

Fabulous Versace I’d Love Reinvented in Crochet

Versace Halter via ShopCurious; I think the openwork design makes it really suitable to re-working the design in crochet

Versace Chiffon Gown via RareVintage; the detail on the back looks like it could be reinvented in basketweave stitch

Which of the designers I’ve written about so far for this project has been your favorite?
