A Bit About Dolce & Gabbana

In 1982 Domenico Dolce met Stefano Gabbana and in 1983 they started their long running romance (which lasted until 2005) and design consulting studio, Dolce & Gabbana. Their first store would open in Milan in 1985.

Arguably what really put them on the map is their collaboration with Madonna in 1991 who wore a heavily embellished corset and jacket they designed for the premiere of her movie Truth or Dare. After that the partnership grew as they designed the costumes for her 1993 world tour Girlie Show. They continued their work with her into the 2000s. Madonna has been quoted as saying "Their clothes are sexy with a sense of humor, like me." which is a perfect way to sum up this powerhouse design duo.
