Donatella Struggled To Meet Expectations
The 52-year-old marked the 10th anniversary of Gianni's death on Sunday by lending some of his creations to a ballet production in Milan. Donatella says, "For the last four months, I've been going through the archives for the ballet. Each costume I found represents a memory. I still hear Gianni's voice, saying, 'don't make a mistake', and I know he would be proud. I couldn't think of a better way to mark the 10th anniversary. If there is a superpower, he's there. It's a presence that hasn't always been a comfort. The hardest part was the expectation that I somehow had to be my brother, to become Gianni. But how could I? But everyone was watching me. The comparison was always there. Was I more like Gianni, or less? Were the clothes what he would have designed? I felt lost, confused. But I had to keep going."
