Ethical Shoe brand Guava will feature in the upcoming runway retrospective for Gianni Versace on 30th January 2018. The runway show will present historical pieces from the Gianni years as well as pieces from private collections from Italy and around the world.

Highlights of the show will include pieces worn by Madonna, Sir Elton John, Anna Wintour. Collectors and fashion enthusiasts will gather at the Kronprinzenpalais, Berlin 30th January -13th April 2018.
A spectacular presentation of Gianni Versace’s iconic pieces will showcase his love for pop art and his time as a designer for Byblos.
Versace’s aesthetic always featured daring cuts, movement, and a riot of prints. Ethical shoe brand Guava was the perfect choice for this collection because of their signature geometric heels, elegance, and boldness.
