Coincidentally Dolce & Gabbana came across each other in 1980 while they were working for the same atelier. Both of them joined hands and started doing freelance designing.
The clothes designed by them got worldwide acclamation with the brand name Dolce & Gabbana and within only four years of their first design, they launched a line of men’s wear. Besides they also opened outlets for women’s wear. Thus, these two innovative fashion designers became the experts of making both men and women look extremely gorgeous on account of their designs.
