They are mostly known for their glamorous and sexy women's line. Domenico Dolce, the son of a Sicilian tailor, attended fashion school briefly, while Stefano Gabbana, the son of a Milanese factory worker, had trained as a graphic designer. Dolce's tailoring and Gabbana's eye for styling were very well receipted when they launched their first women's collection in 1986.  Favorites of Hollywood, the list of clients extends from Madonna, Monica Bellucci, Ayumi Hamasaki, Isabella Rossellini to Beyoncé and Kylie Minogue. They also created the costumes for Madonna's Girlie Show in 1993, as well as Whitney Houston's 1999 tour.
