Dolce & Gabanna is an Italian fashion label that was founded in the 1980s. It is one of the largest fashion houses in the world and is extremely well known. They are known for producing extrovert designs that want to emphasise the wearer’s best assets. Unlike many of their major competitors, they have only two major labels which are Dolce & Gabbana and D&G. They are one of the major fashion houses that suffers a huge amount from the counterfeit trade but they still manage to have a huge global success with a business that turns over nearly $1 billion.
They have a wide range of products in their brand from standard menswear and suits to fragrances and jewellery. They have also produced watches and occasionally produce one off specials such as a limited edition design for the Motorola Razr mobile phone. The designers behind Dolce Gabbana clothes are regarded as providing excellent tailoring to their pieces and still have a huge following.
The label is typically Italian with extrovert designs that are often colourful and in your face. All this with a fair share of black. They are popular with many celebrities and have even designed for a Madonna tour.
The creative force behind Dolce & Gabbana are the two designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. They first crossed each other’s paths in Milan, Italy in the early 1980s. They instantly knew that they shared the same passion for fashion and similar taste in style, design and tailoring. They are both from Italy and started their label only a few years after they met. They have remained at the top of their game since they started in the 1980s. The clothes are available all over the world at the best retailers as well as at their own flagship boutiques around the world.
