House of Versace Movie Debuts on Lifetime

(AllHipHopNews) One of the most name-dropped brands in fashion, Versace, will be revealed in a new Lifetime movie, House of Versace, debuting Oct. 5th on Lifetime.

Based on Wall Street Journal reporter Deborah Ball’s widely-read book “House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder, and Survival”, the movie brings to light the story of Donatella, who, following the brazen murder of her brother, world-renowned designer Gianni Versace at the height of his success, is suddenly thrust into the spotlight as head designer of his fashion empire.

Following the movie’s premiere, at 10:00pm ET/PT, Lifetime will air the hour-long documentary, “Versace: Beyond the Headlines”, providing an in-depth look at Gianni Versace’s start in the fashion business, his incredible rise in such a competitive industry and ultimate creation of the multi-million dollar fashion empire that lives on after his death. The special will include interviews with people who knew Gianni, fashion designers, as well as a police detective and criminologist who explain their take on his tragic murder in front of his Miami mansion on July 15, 1997.
