The verdict is in … Italian designers, Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana, have been sentenced to time in the slammer. They have been found guilty of tax evasion and the judge has sentenced them to one year and eight months in jail. Another horrible part is that their sentence has the potential to cover 4 fashion seasons but it’s been said that it’s “unlikely” for them to go to jail anytime soon .. so we shall see.
The designer duo has had trouble since 2004for evading Italy’s taxes with a holding company in Luxemborg. Still, they plan to appeal the court’s decision and they deny the charges. It looks like Dolce & Gabbana fans have stayed loyal to their favorite designers. The hash tag #freedolceandgabbana has been swarming on Twitter. If you want to support, join the movement 🙂
