Donatella Versace recently said that she went back into the archives for the first time since her brother’s death and pulled out 12 prints that she reproduced for a tribute collection, including ‘Andy Warhol,’ ‘Vogue’ and ‘My Friend Elton’ from 1991.

“Only after 20 years could I do that, even if the pain is the same,” she said on Friday, during Milan Fashion Week.

The show brought together the supermodels that Gianni Versace helped create — Carla Bruni, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Helena Christensen — and a new generation of celebrity models, including Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Kaia Gerber, Crawford’s daughter.

Donatella feted her brother as a designer who empowered woman, a legacy that she has sought to maintain.

“This show is for him, from beginning to end,” she told reporters backstage.
