Versace goes Political

Carla Bruni isn’t the only Italian who is adding a fashionable twist to the political arena. Santo Versace, the older brother of Donatella and the late Gianni is now a member of the State Chamber. But rumour has it that Santo might be heading for a cabinet post in Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s administration soon. Santo, who is also the president of Gianni Versace SpA has been the power behind the house of Versace. He has been running the business side of the company since the beginning, and claims that he won’t give up his duties within the family business. Perhaps he plans on extending the dynasty through his daughter Francesca, who graduated from Central Saint Martins in London and is already creating a stir as an up-and-coming designer.
