Domenico Dolce, Stefano Gabbana to Present Couture

The clients-only event is set for July 9 in Taormina, Sicily; no press are invited.

SICILY, SOTTO VOCE: Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are planning a clients-only couture presentation in Taormina, Sicily, on July 9. It’ll be a far cry from their usual paparazzi-popping, starlet-populated, multimedia runway blitzes. In fact, no press are invited.

The designers have been warming to the idea of exclusive, unique gowns, not unlike those spotted in May on Scarlett Johansson, Bianca Brandolini d’Adda and Andrea Dellal on the red carpet at the Costume Institute gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Dolce and Gabbana reportedly have been mulling a couture line for some time. Word has it that the July presentation on their home turf is an experiment to see if the designers want to take the concept further into a full-fledged business.
