At the fashion house of Giorgio Correggiari, where they were both designers in the 1980s, Gabbana met Domenico Dolce. A few years later, in 1985, the duo formally launched their fashion brand, Dolce & Gabbana, after having previously established a creative consulting studio.
After that, they debuted in the fashion world at Milan Fashion Week with the premiere of their first women’s collection.
