Dynamic fashion duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have been sentenced to jail: The duo that makes Dolce and Gabbana were sentenced to one year and eight months for tax Freud. The famous pair will spend that time behind bars for hiding hundreds of millions of euros from the tax authorities.
The pair who dresses some of the biggest names in Hollywood was not present at the trail and has denied the charges. The pair who one dated are icons of the fashion world and as famous as the celebrities who wear their glamorous high end clothing.
But will the Italian designers actually spend any time behind bars?
The prosecutors had wanted the pair sentenced to three years, but they got 18 months. There is a chance though for the appeal. It will be a sad world for the fashionistas if Dolce and Gabbana if they were sent to jail and the brand worth $5.3 billion would have to halt.
