The legendary duo of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are the stars of the fashion world. They are the most influential and powerful designers whose clients include some of the best dressed people in the world such as Madonna,Beckhams and Sophia Loren Domenico Dolce was born on September 13,1958
and Stefano Gabbana was born on November 14,1962; they first met in 1980 while working as assistants in an atelier in Milan. However, fortune and fame did not come immediately to the pair. Dolce and Gabbana held their first women's wear fashion show in 1986. Not long after, in 1989 they opened their first boutique in Japan.
Their style is a mix of traditional male and female clothing. They were known worldwide when Madonna wore one of the shirts of their collection in her movie “Truth or dare: In bed with Madonna”. She loves the duo so much that in 1993 they designed 1500 costumes for her world tour of “Girlie show”. Their designs are inspired from Mediterranean culture, colors and classic southern Italian cinema of the 40's and 50's era. Their collections are always romantic, sensual and voluptuous. Most of their designs are adapted from the feminist-era, before being modernized and glamorized. They are now fundamentally known for designing the clothes giving women a “fantastically sexy” look.
This dynamic team was seeing stars for their fall/winter 2011 collection in Milan Fashion Week where models glided down the runway in elegant dresses and explosive prints. Besides their love of lacework presented in previous seasons, Dolce and Gabbana added some stylish and boyish appeal to the autumn collection with menswear inspired suiting, pork pie hats and suspenders. Jewel toned suit jackets, leopard prints and crystal embellished dresses brought a sense of rock and roll to the duo's already impeccable craft.
Today, the fashion house, Dolce & Gabbana has come a long way in the last 25 years of its existence. Their contribution to the fashion world in terms of original styling and fantasy is really unmeasurable.
