The Sunday extravaganza showcasing the designs of Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week was their first event for a long time, especially since the duo was convicted in a tax evasion case. There were no signs of any legal troubles as the designer duo looked relaxed and used the opportunity to deliver to the audiences what they are best at.
One theme that ran though their collection was coins. There were also prints al over their models with emphasis upon accessories such as earrings, belts, sandals, etc. The duo looked excited and ready to sell its new designs to fashion loving women around the world on the lookout for new designs from the renowned designer duo.
Using the platform to relate with their fans, Stefano Gabbana complained that they were being hounded by the authorities as if they were thieves. Heir stores in Milan remained closed for three days causing difficulties for their fans. The designer duo seemed agitated especially after Franco D’Alfanso publicly stated that they should not be allowed to showcase their designs inside the city. In fact, the event was not a part of the official schedule of Milan Fashion Week.
Dolce & Gabbana have been found guilty of not declaring an income amounting 1 billion Euros. This means they have to pay a fine of nearly 343 million Euros to the authorities. But the designer duo said that paying this penalty would mean shutting down their business forever. The duo has already receive a jail term for 20 months each but it is very unlikely that they will serve the jail term as they are appealing against the verdict and the next hearing is due at the end of the year.
The inspiration for their garments for the show was the ancient ruins of the city of Sicily and this was evident in the manner n which the designs of these structures could be seen on the skirts of the models.
