Gianni Versace learned all about fashion from his mom, who owned a small tailor shop that sold his first designs. He started out working as a freelance designer, and by the age of 25 has started to create ready-to-wear collections for top fashion houses of the era, such as Genny, Complice, and Callaghan. Versace founded his own company in Milan, in 1978, with the help of his brother Santo. This Italian fashion house soon became one of the leading international fashion houses and today is synonymous with the definition of Italian luxury.
