High glamour tinged with tragedy comes to London’s Victoria & Albert Museum this month, with the first major exhibition of the work of fashion designer Gianni Versace since his death in 1997. As favoured by Diana, Princess of Wales, Elizabeth Hurley and Madonna (dress Madonna wore to the 1995 Brit Awards pictured left), Versace’s imaginative style was both outrageous and ostentatious, but always aimed to flatter the female form. Curated by the V&A’s Claire Wilcox and designed in-house by Mike Malham, the exhibition extols his art and craft. A book to accompany the show, edited by Wilcox, has been designed by Kenneth Carroll Associates. Versace at the V&A runs from 17 October until 12 January 2003.
