Most fashionistas remember that Gianni Versace launched the label in 1978. His sister, Donatella, took over the fashion house after the untimely death of Gianni in 1997. Donatella has grown the company considerably since that time, opening 200 Versace boutiques around the world.

The heritage of Italy and the glamor of the brand is apparent in the design of the shop. Byzantine mosaics emulating the floors of 9th century churches grace the floor. Marble is featured as a wall treatment for the stairway. Baroque bronze adorns lighting fixtures and cabinets. Otherwise, clean, white, undulating walls surround the space proving a contemporary ambiance for display of the high-end garments, leather goods and accessories.
