In 1962, a company called Genny started selling handmade clothing in a small town in Italy (Ancona). Genny grew, and in 1973 a young Gianni Versace became the label’s designer. The same year, Genny launched a new division called Byblos, aimed at a younger market. Propelled by the genius of Versace, plus some other very talented young designers, Byblos was able to become a stand-alone brand by 1983. Byblos fashion has always been bold and exotic, drawing on various cultures for fabric, color, and design. www.byblos.it
