Yet another reason it is important to pay your taxes, people. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were found guilty of tax evasion and have chosen to temporary close their Italian fashion boutiques, stores and cafes in Milan.
Italy is embarrassed by the fashion designers and has publicly stated what an embarrassment it is for such negative international attention. Poor, Italy.
What this means for the American Dolce & Gabbana stores, we are unsure of. But, you can take a wild guess the closing of stores from Milan shall spread towards America once more and more Americans here about another tax evader, who generated hundreds of millions.
For the true fashion-passion, this is a heartbreaking story. We want to turn our cheek and say “No, they couldn’t have!” and continue strutting our G&B bag down Main Street. We wish them luck, send hope their way that they won’t stop designing beautiful, Italian fashion over this horrible accusation. But, as we lay our soft head down to sleep, we know they did… and it’s over.
Rest in peace Dolce & Gabbana fashion. You will be missed, but never forgotten.
