Donatella Versace was originally meant to work in the public relations department of the company and was valued by Gianni Versace as a critic and a muse. He also made her the Vice President of the company, making her responsible for coordinating Versace's fashion shows and advertising campaigns. She even got her fashion label which was called Versus. She got more involved with the company when Gianni Versace was diagnosed with cancer in the mid-1990s.

After he was murdered in 1997, she became the company's head of design. She has collaborated with many celebrities for advertising campaigns including Demi Moore, Courtney Love, Madonna, and Nicki Minaj. One of her most famous designs is the low-cut silk green chiffon dress which was worn by Jennifer Lopez during the 2000 Grammy Awards.
