The designer has acknowledged Biggie made her family brand a household name.
In a discussion with Nicki Minaj in the December/January issue of Interview magazine, Donatella said: “I think Biggie was amazing. He came to my shows in Paris many times, and we’d see each other often. He always used to talk so nicely about my family.
“I think he was so smart, so intelligent. He had such a mind. So I loved what he was doing and how he was giving people a way to know about Versace—I do think he was giving people a way to know about Versace—I do think a lot of people started to know about Versace because of him.”
I put hoes in NY onto DKNY (uh-huh)/ Miami, D.C. prefer Versace (that’s right). Don’t mind me- I’m just citing Biggie’s ‘Hypnotize’ lyrics.
