MILAN — The daylong hearing Wednesday in the ongoing tax trial of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana was an animated one — with judge Antonella Brambilla at times calling for order to allow witnesses to finish their sentences and prosecutor Gaetano Ruta once pacing away in an effort to hold his temper. Dolce & Gabbana managing director and board member Cristiana Ruella and Dolce’s brother and board member Alfonso Dolce attended the hearing, also showing some impatience by either suppressing smiles at some of the remarks made or shaking their heads.
In a preliminary motion, the designers’ lawyer Alberto Simbari, who works with lawyer Massimo Dinoia, asked the court to appoint an expert, highlighting the discrepancies between the declarations made by the different witnesses during the previous hearings, even among members of the same authorities, such as the tax police and the Revenue Agency.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
