Gianni Versache | Retrospective
Groninger Museum till May 7, 2023
One of the most influential couturiers ever comes to life at the Groninger Museum in Gianni Versace Retrospective. This colorful, daring, emotional exhibition takes visitors inside the eccentric Italian fashion designer’s world of extravagant clothing and lavish catwalk shows in which clothing, pop music, and design come spectacularly together. Gianni Versace was murdered 25 years ago, but his revolutionary spirit lives on in the fashion of today. From 3 December 2022 through 7 May 2023, the Groninger Museum honors Gianni Versace and his trailblazing designs.
With the murder of Gianni Versace, the fashion world lost one of the most important designers of the 20th century. Gianni Versace Retrospective showcases outfits, accessories, fabrics, drawings, interior designs, and footage of legendary shows harking back to the Italian designer’s glory days between 1989 and 1997, all testifying to his extraordinary creativity. Gianni Versace linked fashion with music, photography and graphic design and led the way in the transformation of fashion shows and advertising campaigns into works of art.
The book accompanies the must-see exhibition in the Groninger Museum and is a tribute to a leading fashion pioneer.
