Versace: The Bryan Abrams Collection



Posted on November 2, 2016 by Tony Ward




Photography & Fashion students at the University of Pennsylvania  have been very busy in the past couple of weeks editing photographs from their recent visit to the class by Bryan Abrams, who maintains one of the largest individual Versace wardrobes in the world.  Mr. Abrams brought in a dozen vintage Versace silk shirts for the energized students to photograph after  they listened to a series of fascinating stories about Bryan Abrams personal relationship with Gianni Versace, and close members of the Versace brand.

Students photographed models supplied by Main Line Model & Talent agency between two newly completed  project spaces on the second floor of Addams Hall.  The class also had an opportunity on an unusually warm fall night to take the shoot outdoors, to include a sliver of the Philadelphia skyline and cityscape.
