Gianni and Donatella Versace Photo Book

Sante D’Orazio has planned a fitting tribute to commemorate the 10th-anniversary of the death of Gianni Versace. The famed photographer, along with teNeus Publishing, will release Gianni and Donatella this October, a US$95 book of photos chronicling what was essentially the former’s last collection and the latter’s first. D’Orazio, who penned a special introduction in the book, was invited by the Versace family to document the October 1997 show from both the front row and backstage. Versace had begun preparation for his Spring 1998 show in June 1997, only to have his life ended the following month. The color and black and white images, captured over four days as the family prepared for the milestone show, have been kept in the treasure troves until now.
