Always ready to support wherever she can, Donatella Versace announced today that she will soon launch the Gianni Versace Scholarship. The goal of the scholarship, which marks the 20th anniversary of the late designer’s murder, is to offer a “comprehensive financial support package” for aspiring designers of the MA Fashion Course at Central Saint Martins. She noted: “Central Saint Martins educates and trains some of the best talents in the world of fashion. Many of their alumni have come to work with me over the years”. She continued to state that she had “always been a great advocate of supporting and listening to young talent, and it is with great pleasure that we are funding a yearly scholarship at the college as a tribute to my brother Gianni. He was a visionary designer, and in his memory we wanted to nurture the creators of tomorrow.” Note that in the past, several CSM graduates have worked on collections over at Versace, including Christopher Kane and Louise Goldin.
