Dolce & Gabbana Host Capri Fashion Show

By Paul Joseph

World renowned Italian fashion brand Dolce & Gabbana held a lavish fashion show on the island of Capri last week.

The private event was used to showcase the company’s Fall /Winter 2014/15 ‘Italian Couture’ Collection.

Models arrived on the island by boat from Sorrento where they congregated on a beach which served as a stage for the show.

The event saw a large range of Dolce & Gabbana pieces on display, including striking gowns with Sicilian inspired prints, sumptuous furs and crystal embellished ensembles.

Founders Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana met in Milan, Italy in 1980 whilst working for the same fashion house. In 1982 they established a designer consulting studio which grew to become “Dolce & Gabbana”. They presented their first women’s collection in 1985 in Milan, and in the same city a year later their first store opened its doors.

Dolce & Gabbana has grown into one of the world’s most famous fashion houses.
