Fame and Fashion. Jianni Versace

Jianni Versace believed in pushing to the limit. His leathers were sleazy, his dresses fit the body like a wet glove. As a designer he could be titillating, outrageous, bombastic, vulgar, classic, avant-garde and, of course, wildly expensive. He became known as much for the way he presented his fashions on the runway, in advertising and in lavish image books- as for the clothes themselves. His approach was always provocative, irreverent, even shocking.

Versaces vision went away beyond that Versace simply loved rockn roll and the freedom that it stood for. His shows were staged like rockn roll shows, with great pounding sountracks. Born in 1946 in the town of Ressio Calabra, in Italy, Versace was the son of a dressmaker. Like many other important designers, he learned to make clothes at an early age. He studied architecture but soon became involved in his career. He served as a buyer for his mothers boutique business, worked for a series of ready-to-wear companies. His first solo mens collection was in 1979. He also designed for women.

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in the English county of Wiltshire, about 2.0 miles (3.2 km) west of Amesbury and 8 miles (13 km) north of Salisbury. One of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge is composed of a circular setting of large standing stones set within earthworks. It is at the centre of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds.

Radiocarbon dating in 2008 suggested that the first stones were erected in 24002200 BC, whilst another theory suggests that blue stones may have been erected at the site as early as 3000 BC.

The surrounding circular earth bank and ditch, which constitute the earliest phase of the monument, have been dated to about 3100 BC. The site and its surroundings were added to the UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites in 1986 in a co-listing with Avebury Henge monument.

Archaeological evidence found by the Stonehenge Riverside Project in 2008 indicates that Stonehenge could possibly have served as a burial ground from its earliest beginnings.

Lexical theme: Habits.  
Grammar: Future in the Past.  
Teacher: assistant professor Gaiipova Gulipa Abdraimovna


Like Simple Future, Future in the Past has two different forms in English: would and was going to. Although the two forms can sometimes be used interchangeably, they often express two different meanings. USE -Future in the Past is used to express the idea that in the past you thought something would happen in the future. It does not matter if you are correct or not. Future in the Past follows the same basic rules as the Simple Future. Would is used to volunteer or promise, and was going to is used to plan. Moreover, both forms can be used to make predictions about the future.
FORMS Examples:  
Would [would + VERB] I knew you would help him. I knew you would not help him. I knew Julie would make dinner. voluntary action He promised he would send a postcard from Egypt. promise
Was/Were Going To [was/were + going to + VERB] I knew you were going to go to the party. I knew you were not going to go to the party. Jane said Sam was going to bring his sister with him, but he came alone. plan I had a feeling that the vacation was going to be a disaster. prediction
