[edit] so now Donatella's daughter's turned 18 and she owns the majority of the company, will she become the designer, or will Donatella carry on taking the fashion world by storm?
Allegra´s interest has nothing to do with fashion, she wants to study drama so i think Versace´s destiny will still lie on donatella´s hands.

But will she give her 50% over to her mother, or will she just keep it and get 50% of the company's profit?

you got me there!, i´m not totally sure but i think i saw on the news that people from versace will take care of it or something, i don´t think she will give her 50% of the company, i think or it sounds better to have people administrating it for you right?, i don´t know, it was Gianni´s will so it even sound a bit disrespecfull to give all of that work amounted fortune to somenone else, and at the end everything stays in family so...

Hey guys, I never really got to hear anything about what happened. Can anyone shed some light on the tragedy?

Thanks

Btw, MissoniHeiress, is your tfs name just a name or do you really have any relation to the House of Missoni?

I should add thought, for the sake of the thread that I do very much love the older Versace stuff, not so much what Donatella has done.

i saw a tv show where they narrated how everything happened and how everyone dealed with it (friends of him, family, even how police acted to catch the criminal) it was broadcasted on ARTE last summer but it looked like and old documentary so it was probably not the first time it was shown.

i loved the images from the funeral. Anna wintour, karl lagerfeld, princess diana, elton john... everybody was there! it was sad yet extremely beautiful and passioned... just what gianni was all about i guess
