Lots of inaccuracy[edit]

I think there's a lot of inaccuracy in Versace Lines section of the article: it is my understanding that the following lines exist:

Gianni Versace (this is a pret-a-porter, or ready-to-wear, collection of high-fashion clothes which is presented four times a year - twice for men's and twice for women's - at Milan fashion week and sold through Versace boutiques and high-end department stores.

Versace Jeans Couture - this is the diffusion range of jeans, t-shirts etc. sold mostly in department stores and small boutiques.

Atelier Versace - the limited numbers, to-order, 'haute couture' style collection of women's eveningwear (not discontinued, because still featured on their website)

Versace Limited - bags and butthole

Versace Home Collection - furnishings

There are then the beauty/fragrance, eyewear, and watch/jewellery licenses, which don't really constitute 'lines' in their own right.

Versace Sport, Versus, Versace Classic, Versace Collection, Versace Young, and Versace Intensive are all, to the best of my knowledge, discontinued.

I believe this information can be verified by looking at the Versace website, and changes should be made to the Versace Lines section of the article because it is currently very muddled.

The idea that Versace became a household name after Elizabeth Hurley wore one of his dresses is ridiculous. The brand was already rather better known than Miss Hurley. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.197.15.138 (talk) 08:41, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Versace Sport line was stopped in 2008 - was it due to "large counterfacting"? Though presumably the author meant "widespread counterfeiting".

Ok, I do not think that the mention of the lines should belong in the article. This reads like an ad. Geraldshields11 (talk) 19:36, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Donatella committing suicide[edit]


I think the information about Donatella committing suicide in 9/06 is false and should be deleted. 5/21/07

== Hi! I would really like it if you could find more info on Versace. I'm very interested in fashion and designers. If you know something about Versace that is not in this page, please edit it. Thanks! ==]]

Why don't you buy some stuff and learn about it. While you're doing that you can learn about Versace from the people who work in the Boutique.

The grammar in this article is atrocious 70.137.142.207 12:07, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

The whole section on Versace eyeglasses reads like a PR release. The versace eyeglass frames citation links to some marketing site for an online shop. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.169.12.106 (talk) 06:06, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Versace which originates from the ancient Greek region of Calabria, actually has its roots in the Greek surname Versakis but has been Latinized to Versace....123.211.192.43 (talk) 05:58, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

I attempted to clean-up this article...[edit]

While this article still needs some serious work, and plenty more citations, I attempted to fix some of the terrible grammar errors. If you plan on editing this article, pay special attention to the "Going Public" section. As it was worded by the former author, the meaning was messy and jumbled, and I could find no information to clarify the subject. Thanks --KristaCalla 15:50, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Thank you KristaCalla for your comment. I changed the section name to IPO. Geraldshields11 (talk) 19:38, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Author[edit]

Why would you want to deauthor me, seen as how I wrote most of it and my oh so shocking grammar! --Djkinsella 23:16, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

Suitly emphazi, please. --Darkfred Talk to me 23:24, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

What is not to understand? I added to the article in depth a few months ago, but I'm no longer listed on the history page; does this mean I was removed as an author? If so, why? What an odd thing to do.--Djkinsella 22:36, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Trust me, you are still on the history page. Noone has removed you, in fact it is nearly impossible to remove a block of history. Only one or two people are authorized to do it. One or two people have complained about your grammar, but this is no problem, it was fixed quickly by a native english speaker. In fact if you would like help with grammar send me a message and I can proof read for you. --Darkfred Talk to me 23:33, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
Were you perhaps accidentally checking the history of this discussion page, rather than the history of the main article page. Its a mistake I've made several times in the past and can be confusing. -- Solipsist 05:52, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
Ah never mind! Perhaps I was, I just thought I'd done something really wrong and was removed because of it! One thing that irritates me at the moment with this is this "Persace" thing, I've never heard of it, someone keeps adding it. A Google search produces no evidence of validity. Thank you both for clarifying :-)--Djkinsella 13:26, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
The Persace thing appears to be completely invented bullshit from what I have researched. Even if it was true it wouldn't merit inclusion. Just because I collect cards doesn't mean i should be included in the card article. --Darkfred Talk to me 16:00, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
Haha very true. Thank you again. Djkinsella 22:40, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

I find your continual dismissals of the Persace issue very narrow minded. Simply because neither of you are aware of the Persace movement that does not mean that it doesn’t exist. Though admittedly you've gone through the foolproof avenue of Google to check its validity, because if something isn't on Google, then by default it doesn't exist. Persace is a cultural movement, spawned from one individual's horrific taste in Versace clothing. The term is widely recognised as slang for anything negative and I am shocked and annoyed that it is constantly being edited off this page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.9.72.247 (talkcontribs)

Continue being shocked. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Djkinsella (talkcontribs)

Ha-ha aren't you funny, still we'll see who's laughing at the end of the day, there is a team of people behind the Persace revolution. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.9.72.247 (talkcontribs)

Currently, I am. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Djkinsella (talkcontribs)

Tell me is it satisfying editing an online encyclopedia with no monetary benefits? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.9.72.247 (talkcontribs)

Yep :-) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Djkinsella (talkcontribs)

"Versace is the most famous design company in the world."[edit]

Where is this coming from? That needs to be taken off there unless you can provide some sort of basis. <unsigned>

I agree that it should be changed. Advert language without a source. Geraldshields11 (talk) 19:46, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Size Zero o muerte![edit]

The Versace heir has severe anorexia and is in intensive care with bad outlook, at least some tabloid wrote that yesterday. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 82.131.210.162 (talk) 13:05, 30 March 2007 (UTC).

This in BLP issues and should not be mentioned in the Versace company article. What is your news source? Geraldshields11 (talk) 19:49, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Versace.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Versace.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
