Versace-loving vendors had mixed success at their weekend auctions.

Interior designer Jason Scott secured $1.045 million for his Zetland offering through Ray White agent Jack McGhee.

The bidding started at $900,000, before selling to a young first homebuyer from Meadowbank.

The two-bedroom Joynton Ave unit cost $350,000 before its makeover into the “epitome of Versace” by Scott, who is now off to build at Richmond.

There was no Versace-styled sale sticker on another scheduled weekend auction listing at Casula.

In trying to replicate that style, it was estimated that John and Debbie Tsikouris’ Versace inclusions cost at least $380,000 but the unique nature of the fittings meant they were almost impossible to value.

“It’s a show home — you either love it or you hate it,” John said during its marketing. “It has taken a lot of hard work … we will be sad to see it gone. My wife and I are Versace fanatics.”

The Versace style unit at 2410/8 Joynton Ave in Zetland sold on the weekend.

Fashion icon Gianni Versace, who was killed outside his Miami mansion Casa Casuarina in 1997, was famed for his vivid colours and bold prints.

He was also known to draw inspiration from Graeco-Roman art, reflected in many of the design choices in his Miami home, which has operated as a hotel since 2015 (it sold for US$41.5 million in 2013).
