Stefano attended the Istituto Superiore per le Industrie Artistiche in Rome. In 1980, he met Dolce through designer Giorgio Correggiari, and three years later, the pair would start to work on their own, leading to the eventual launch of Dolce & Gabbana S.p.A (D&G) in 1985. They made their fashion show debut at Milano Collezioni’s New Talents., and released their first collection called “Real Women” the following year. In 1987, the first D&G store opened, and the following year they entered into a partnership with the manufacturing company Dolce Saverio. The popularity of the business grew quickly, and so their net worth also increased significantly too.

They expanded to have fashion shows in various parts of the world, such as Tokyo and New York. They also worked on new collection lines including beachwear, menswear and lingerie. In 1990, they opened their New York City showroom, and also released their first fragrance, Dolce & Gabbana Parfum.

In 1993, Dolce & Gabbana found more success after they were chosen by Madonna for her costumes in the “Girlie Show World Tour”. This has led them to attract more celebrity clients such as Angelina Jolie and Monica Belluci, which certainly helped to increase their net worth. They’ve also expanded to include more products such as sunglasses, belts, footwear and watches, selling more products in Italy than competitors Gucci, Armani, and Versace. In 2009, it was reported that the company had around 113 stores and 21 factory outlets with an annual turnover of over 1 billion euro.

Thanks to the success of D&G, Gabbana and Dolce have received numerous honors. Their first fashion award was the International Woolmark Prize given in 1991. The Dolce & Gabbana Parfum was also the Best Fragrance of the Year in 1993. In 2009, they were given the Ambrogino Gold medal by the City of Milan.

For his personal life, it is known that Gabbana and Dolce were a couple for several years. They had several properties together but eventually ended their relationship in 2005. Despite that, they still work together at D&G. Stefano is the 27th richest person in Italy as reported by Forbes in 2015. He’s also had his share of troubles, being convicted of tax evasion but was eventually released after an appeal of their case. In 2015, he also clashed with singer Elton John due to a difference in point of view with regards to in vitro fertilization.

Quotes

#Quote
1My mum is totally crazy for fashion still. Her job was as a laundress, but I loved it when she would dress up in her red suit with a mini jacket and flared trousers and get her wig fixed at the hairdresser's - it was the time of wigs - and we would go shopping.
2Sugar is like a drug. If I have one bite, I need to eat it all. I can eat an entire panettone in one sitting.
3I am opposed to the idea of a child growing up with two gay parents. A child needs a mother and a father. I could not imagine my childhood without my mother. I also believe that it is cruel to take a baby away from its mother.
4I like Passion Duo, our brand-new gloss fusion lipstick. I also like our Illuminator - it's a glow-illuminating powder.
5You don't change your style by changing your bag. You change it with your clothes.
6I love the Weather Channel because my mood changes a lot according to the weather!

9My mum is totally crazy for fashion still.
10I am a serious guy.
11For me, the future isn't coming from the USA, like it was before.
12I never talked about homosexuality with my family. After I was 18, they know everything, but I never talk; it was like an information but in silence. I start to talk when I was 32, it was good for me - it was like a liberation. I'm talking about a love story. I'm not talking about sex because love is love.
13Our fashion for us, it's an expression; first of all of life, I put all of myself in my fashion. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad, but this is a mirror, an expression about Domenico and Stefano. It's not just a profession: it's a person with a lot of personality.
14The first thing I do when I wake up is take a cup of tea, a cup of coffee, and vitamins, and then I look at my dogs. I have three dogs, Rosa, Toto, and Mimmo, all Labradors.
15The first thing I do when I come to work, I say hello to my dogs and give them one biscuit each. The butler takes them out to the park and drops them off at the office, so they are there waiting for me. They are very popular in the studio. They play all the time. They run around, up and down, left and right.
16We feel a special bond with Sicily and its people - in fact, our first campaigns were shot in Sicily, like the one shot in Vucciria Sicilian historical market We enjoyed showing the faces and the characters that crowd that beautiful market every day.
17The fashion industry now has a direct relationship with its customers. Thanks to things like Twitter, ideas can be shared and circulated.
18Dolce & Gabbana is like our child. The editing of a collection before a show is a tough call, as we would like to show everything!
19Italians know that what matters is style, not fashion. Italian style does not have social or age boundaries.
20I adore Britain! It's my favourite country; I love their eccentricity. I find Britain so inspiring.
21I drive around on my scooter in Milan alone - we don't have bodyguards or anything like that. I am a fashion designer, not a celebrity, and although I get stopped for autographs and the like, I don't think I am famous.
22Each one of us interprets various stimuli according to our own personal sensibility.
23My memories are of denim. I remember being 12 in my Levi's. Wow! As a teenager in Milan, I was really fascinated by Fiorucci, but at the time I was not rich enough to buy. Oh my God! I made a collection of Fiorucci shopping bags, and my mother, she still has them and my stickers, and now I invite Elio Fiorucci to our shows.
24I had a few problems. I didn't realise it until I started going to therapy. I did it for 10 years, two days a week, and pretty quickly I understood that a lot of my suffering, many of my issues, were rooted in my realising that I was gay when I was a little boy. I knew I was different. That made me very fragile.
25It's always the same - all men and women want to be sexy.
26My memories are of denim. I remember being 12 in my Levi's. Wow!
27In life you need to take a risk.
28I like to eat pizza and spaghetti pomodoro, and I'm crazy for dessert. I like all of them: cassata, cheesecake, biscuits.
29What the fashion system says and what the fashion customer says are really two different things.
30In my whole life, I've worn black tie three times. I can't tie the knot myself.
31What I can say is that there are some collections that come easily, and others that require more work.
32In my whole life, I've worn black tie three times. I can't tie the knot myself. Once, at the premiere of the opera, I got to La Scala before Domenico, and I was hiding in the corner until he arrived, and I said, 'Quick, you have to tie my tie, please!' Otherwise, I'll wear a tuxedo jacket with jeans and my bling-bling cross.
33Fashion takes its inspiration from society and everyday life, which is the same for everyone, and this is perhaps the reason why certain elements recur.
34Fashion is OK for five days, one minute, six months, but style is for the rest of the life.
35We don't think only men can be powerful and strong. Behind the heads of the Mafia, the leaders of culture, there are always very strong women. European culture is a matriarchy, especially in the south. The women have a lot of power.
36My dream is to have a baby, not to adopt one, because I am not up to it and I don't feel strong enough. I want my own child, a biological child, the fruit of my sperm, conceived through artificial insemination because it wouldn't make sense for me to make love to a woman I don't love.
37To me, flowers are happiness.
38Customers are very demanding and well informed.
39Dreams can still come true; you need a great deal of energy and determination, and a little bit of luck.
40I don't have the time to be bored.
41You have to work very hard behind the scenes, to make a message clear enough for a lot of people to understand.
