Today is the anniversary of the death of Gianni Versace, killed by Miami serial killer Andrew Cunanan. Versace opened his first boutique in 1978 and in less that 20 years built a fashion empire that continues to this day. His unique contribution to the fashion world made him an icon of 20th century design.
