Dolce & Gabbana shows are always well-attended, and Saturday’s Alta Moda presentation in Sicily, Italy, was no exception. Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda show took a different approach, throwing its own off-the-cuff, star-studded event in Siracusa, Sicily, to mark the anniversary tenth anniversary of the debut of the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda show – its own version of Haute Couture.
And what a show it was. For the event, Dolce & Gabbana took over Siracusa’s major Piazza Duomo. Showcasing looks after an epic look against the breathtaking backdrop of the Siracusa Cathedral. Consider beautiful lace gowns, larger-than-life ruffles, religious symbolism, and a lot of red, black, and gold: after all, the show was inspired by the Sicilian woman.
Dolce & Gabbana’s Alta Moda events, known for their large and lavish size that slowly unfolds over three days, display stunning, one-of-a-kind high jewelry creations, as well as men’s and women’s unique couture.
