Dolce and Gabbana Debuts First Ever Couture Show!
It is an occasion for riotous celebration! The long adored house of Dolce and Gabbana has successfully created a top-secret couture collection! Debuted in an exclusive and clandestine show in Sicily, the show was only a part of a weekend-long event to celebrate the line. The collection has been a project that has been in production for the past six months, but a dream that has been in the making for years.
With 27 years of experience in the business, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce, know exactly how to play the game of the fashion industry. Inviting the crème de la crème to take part in this incredible couture centered weekend secured patrons from an already admiring following. Only three publications- The Daily Telegraph, Le Figaro, and Corriere della Sera as well as the editors of Vogue were allowed to cover the show and events under the strictest of standards. Gabbana explained that all the secrecy was “not because of us, but the customers. They really do not want to see their dresses in a magazine.”
Dolce and Gabbana seem to have made the event truly into an affair to remember, hosting evenings of fine dinners and dancing in the throughout the several days leading up to the show. Before the presentation of the 73 couture looks, Stefano Gabbana declared: “When we started out 27 years ago, our dream was to become a maison like Chanel, old Chanel. And now, maybe, this dream is coming true.”
