Gianni Versace Early Life

On December 2, 1946, in Reggio Calabria, Italy, Giovanni Maria Versace was born. He grew up there with his mother Francesca, a seamstress, and sisters Donatella and Santo Versace.

Ancient Greek history, which predominates in the region’s history, had a significant impact on Versace. Without finishing the course, he joined Liceo Classico Tommaso Campanella and studied Latin and classical Greek. Additionally, Andy Warhol had an impact on him. He created “Byblos,” a popular brand for Genny’s younger customers, in 1973. In 1977, he created Complice, another, more experimental line for Genny. Versace debuted his first signature line for ladies at the Milanese Palazzo Della Permanente Art Museum a few years later, inspired by his success. In September of the same year, he had his debut fashion show. In 1978, he launched his first store in Milan’s Via Della Spiga.
