Few names in fashion conjure the same aura as Versace. A veritable dynasty of luxury goods, a family story that would make a great Hollywood movie, and the extensively nipped and tucked Donatella. Drama and decadance... no other fashion brand comes close.
Gianna Versace founded the brand in the 1970s in Italy with his sister Donatella, who now runs the company together with her daughter.
The brand's meteoric rise now puts it as one of the most famous fashion brands in the world, with celebrity fans such as Madonna, Sir Elton John and Princess Diana helping to cement its reputation.
Although they have stores all round the world, perhaps the best one to visit would be on avenue Montaigne. The chicest brand on the the chicest street in the chicest city in the world? Quite possibly...
The Grand Palais will be hosting the modern and contemporary art fair better known as “Artparis” this April...
On this occasion, it will showcase the work of a hundred of the most vibrant French and foreign galleries that appear to be particularly representative of the international modern and contemporary art market.
Retaining its modern-contemporary slant, this significant Parisian art event offers a comprehensive overview of modern art from the 1900s onwards while also featuring a wide range of works by major contemporary artists, French or resident in France, and up-and-coming young artists representing the current French art scene.
“Artparis” brings together about a hundred French and foreign galleries from 14 countries under the glass roof of the Grand Palais over a five-day period.
For this edition, artparis will present a thematic exhibition, specifically dedicated to China Contemporary arts.
