Dolce & Gabbana Drama: A Runway Boycott, the Designers Spar With Miley Cyrus
This post is also available in: Español
Let’s just say that fashion label Dolce & Gabbana is prone to controversy. Well, in keeping with tradition, Dolce & Gabbana’s S/S 2018 fashion presentation has managed to ignite not one but two instances of drama following Milan Fashion Week.
Never afraid of voicing their opinions, Dolce and Gabbana both have raised eyebrows with controversial comments in the past. Remember when Gabbana made a negative comment about same-sex families in 2015? Or when the label fawned over Melania Trump on Instagram every time she sported their wares? Following that last controversy, the brand launched a #BoycottDolce&Gabbana T-shirt in order to troll the brand’s haters.
The Italian luxury label has used millennial influencers as runway models to broaden its consumer base before and gin up press. Most recently in Milan, the label also invited the younger generation of fame to play along — people like Tyler Clinton, nephew of Bill and Hillary Clinton — to appeal to even younger crowds.
