Published by Rizzoli, the volume retraces the designer’s path as creative director of the Versace label from the death of her brother Gianni Versace in 1997. “Versace,” which hit bookstores last month, includes pictures by Richard Avedon, Steven Meisel and Mario Testino.
The first appointment of the book’s promotional tour is on Sunday when Versace will be at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, where the following day she will host a book signing at Harrods. On Dec. 7, the book will be presented at The Times Center in New York, where on Dec. 8 the designer will sign copies at the Versace flagship on Fifth Avenue. The last event is slated for Dec. 15 at Milan’s Piccolo Teatro.
Fashion journalists Maria Luisa Frisa, Tim Blanks and Simone Marchetti, along with Victoria and Albert Museum fashion curator Sonnet Stanfill, will serve as moderators at the events.
