The three-part wedding of Courtney Kardashian and Travis Barker was a love affair, the choice of a designer-friendly party was not so much appreciated. After the Las Vegas wedding photos were leaked, after a big ceremony in Portofino, Italy, it became clear that the entire Kardashian-Jenner group was dressed in Dolce & Gabbana.
The fashion house is seemingly enjoying a resurgence among today’s biggest stars, but it wasn’t too long ago that the Dolls & Gabbana sank into controversy. The history of Milan-based brand racism and homophobia runs deep. In less than a decade, the brand has been criticized for advertising a Chinese model eating Italian food with chopsticks; Selling “slave sandals” and blackcamur earrings; Referring to babies born with IVF as “synthetic” (Dolls issued an apology); They oppose homosexual adoption; Calling Selena Gomez “ugly”; And making a #boycott shirt after receiving feedback on former First Lady Melania Trump’s outfit.
And yet, Dolce & Gabbana still enjoys public support from high-profile celebrities.
In addition to the aforementioned Kardashian-Barker wedding, Miley Cyrus has publicly congratulated her younger brother Brayson for taking a walk on the Dolls & Gabbana show on Instagram. Vice President Kamala Harris wore a gray suit of the brand in late January 2021. Kristen Stewart’s glittering critics’ favorite outfit has topped the list of some of the best outfits.
Dolce & Gabbana is one of the many fashion houses in the midst of a desperate rebrand after being embroiled in controversy. With the help of celebrities, influencers and promoters, these labels somehow “canceled the culture” and forced their way back to the red carpet and Instagram feeds – with the ultimate goal of returning to the goodwill of shoppers.
It raises the question: can a fashion brand even be scrapped?
