ImageSome breaking fashion news as Dolce & Gabbana have been sentanced to one year and eight months in prison. They had been found guilty of tax evasion. Full and the original story in the link above!

I am most probably not the only one but as an inspiring blogger and especially fashion lover, whether that is aspiring fashion illustrator/designer like myself,  it is sad when news like this is announced, much like a death in the fashion world its always shocking. I feel somewhat disheartened that these creative people that I really look up to are caught in this negative media, I imagine I’m not the only one. However, I agree that what they had done was incredibly silly, it seems a lot of the giants in the retail and business industry have been avoiding tax. I heard news that Amazon, Google and Starbucks had been caught of doing this and well it is rather disgusting how a company can do this. The economy needs companies to pay their dues otherwise it starts to sink. I guess the duo will just have to serve their time and be more careful and honest in the future.
