Dolce and Gabbana
At the early age of 7 Domenico Dolce, born in 1958, learns how to sew a suit coat from his father who works as textile manufacturer. Stefano Gabbana, born in 1962, works as graphic designer before starting his career in fashion. Both designers meet at an atelier in Milan in 1980.
First achievements and the foundation of D&G
Two years after their first meeting in Milan the designers decide to work together on joint creations which are later produced in the textile factory of Domenico’s father. In 1986 the first women’s collection is launched which is soon extended with swim- and underwear-lines in 1989. The first men’s collection is published in 1990 – a century shaped by great successes for the designers who are praised as the flagship for Italian luxury fashion together with Gianni Versace. The introduction of the second line D&G in 1993 highlights the successful course of the designer duo. The D&G watches enjoy particular popularity ever since.
