Dolce & Gabbana
Today’s Designer Day is about a grand Italian fashion house I’m sure you know well: Dolce & Gabbana.
The success was started by designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana in fashion capital Milan in. They started out as a couple, but since 2005 have cooperated only as friends. Dolce & Gabbana’s professional partnership started in 1982, but it was first in 1986 that they showed their first collection.
(Yes, that is Marilyn Monroe smiling at you. Could it get more awesome?)
Dolce & Gabbana is divided into two brands; D&G and Dolce & Gabbana. D&G tend to be more casual clothing and lower prices, while Dolce & Gabbana often is haute couture. (which we adore from a distance and dream about having).
Dolce & Gabbana’s motto for their dresses is: sweet and sharp, and their style often combines traditional elements, nostalgic glamour, modern cool and unashamed sexiness. It’s fun and fabulous.
For a while Dolce & Gabbana threatened to retire when they passed 40, but luckily, that never happened. They are still going strong for which we are so, so, so, so, so, sooooo grateful!
