Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana is one of the most popular among Hollywood stars. It was founded by Domenico Dolce (born 1958, near Palermo, Sicily) and Stefano Gabbana (born 1962, Milan, Italy). The unique style of this luxury fashion house is best described by the phrase “they are making stars look like stars”. Actually, in Dolce & Gabbana womenswear every woman is able to look like a star.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana met in Milan, where they were working as assistants in an atelier. In 1985 they decided to launch their own fashion line. In 1986 they presented their first independent women’s ready-to-wear collection. Since then the brand range was supplemented with menswear and a line of signature fragrances. Along with clothing Dolce & Gabbana designs and manufacture accessories.

Fashion house Dolce & Gabbana has two central lines which have a few, but significant differences:

This line is specialized in luxury products more influenced by designers. These are more formal and ‘timeless’ products, complying with long-term trends rather than seasonal changes. Under the label sunglasses and corrective eyewear, handbags, and watches are sold. In 2010 Madonna featured the designing of sunglasses collection under Dolce&Gabbana label.

D&G is much more casual label. Collections are created using street fashion inspiration. D&G is focused on trends creation rather than following already established. D&G sells clothes and watches. In 2005–2006, a limited line of 1000 golden D&G Motorola RAZR V3i mobile phones was created and distributed.

Famous quotes of designer duo that best describe the main style of their fashion house are:

“When we design it’s like a movie,”
“We think of a story and we design the clothes to go with it.”

All of Dolce & Gabbana admirers say that their clothes have that special feature that makes every woman look and feel sexy. Isabella Rossellini says “The first piece of theirs I wore was a white shirt, very chaste, but cut to make my breasts look as if they were bursting out of it.” It seems that it really works: according to the financial reports presented by Dolce & Gabbana company, its turnover was $2.12 billion in 2008.
