Dolce & Gabbana, the brand
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana first founded a design consulting firm in 1982. Already at the age of six Domenico Dolce designed and tailored. The two met for the first time when Domenico Dolce applied to the Gabbana fashion house and Stefano recognized his talent. The first collection was launched in October 1985 and was presented for the first time at Milan Fashion Week, alongside 5 other designers. It bore the name “Real Woman” and met with great enthusiasm among the viewers. In 1986 the duo launched their second collection and opened their first store. A few years later, in 1990, the first men’s collection followed. In order to reach the younger target group, the two created a second product series in 1994, which bore the name “D&G” but was still in the upper price segment. The head office of the fashion company is still located in Milan, Italy. The two, who originally wanted to become rock stars and actors, are particularly proud of the diversity of their company.
