Flashback to Fall '15 when our creative director/photographer, Eric Monteiro, shot a beautiful fashion editorial at THE VILLA, Casa Casuarina, previously Gianni Versace's mansion on Ocean Drive in South Beach. Gianni Versace owned The Villa from 1992 until his death in 1997, and he famously entertained celebrities like Princess Diana, Elton John and Madonna there.
Today The Villa Casa Casuarina is a boutique hotel and an opulent setting for the most elegant event productions. This fashion editorial for Trillionaire Magazine used the venue's unique backdrops to showcase stunning Fall fashions, including Oscar de La Renta, Dolce & Gabana, Marchesa and Dsqaured2.
Thousands of 24K gold tiles line the Poseidon-themed pool, which was inspired by Gianni Versace's "Marine Vanitas" collection. Exclusive social and corporate events are set in the luxurious poolside area.
