Dolce and Gabbana Stage First Couture Show 2012

Dolce & Gabbana to Present Test-Run Couture Collection



Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana will dip their toes into couture when they present a small, custom collection in Taormina, Sicily on July 9. Most of the show's attendees will be clients, and reportedly only three unspecified media outlets — none of them American — are on the invitation list.

If rumors are to be believed, this presentation is a test that will allow Dolce & Gabbana to determine whether adding a Couture collection to its repertoire is a good business decision. A source inside the house said the designers had been interested in the "artistic challenge" of couture for some time.

Dolce & Gabbana's rival Italian fashion houses Versace and Armani will present their own couture collections in Paris on July 1 and July 3, respectively.
