Versace's future is looking a brighter colour of gold in 2011 after sluggish demand for Luxury goods pulled down its 2009 revenue to 268 million Euros from 336.3 million in 2008. Versace made an operating loss of 49.6 million Euros in 2009 compared with 400,000 Euros in 2008. Retail sales and orders increased in the first quarter of 2010, supporting that Versace’s recent restructuring efforts have paid off. On the design side, Versace has concurrently steered away from its ‘trademark glitz’ to create some designs with wider reach and appeal.
