"From the Heart to the Hands: Dolce&Gabbana" will bring together the fashion house’s one-of-a-kind creations for the very first time. The exhibition will be an open love letter to Italian culture as the enduring inspiration for Dolce&Gabbana’s fashion designs, tracing the extraordinary translation of Domenico Dolce’s and Stefano Gabbana’s ideas, from the heart through to their realization, by hand.

The exhibition, which will launch in Milan and then tour worldwide, will celebrate the brand as a symbol of Italian style, following the dreams of Alta Moda, and explore its unconventional approach to the world of luxury: elegant, sensual and unique, yet humorous, irreverent, and subversive.

Curated by Florence Müller, and produced by IMG, the exhibition will also feature work by visual artists in dialogue with Dolce&Gabbana’s celebrated designs.

The archive and new collections will be displayed in a series of themes highlighting the many layers of Italian cultural influences at work in their approach to fashion design – these include art, architecture, artisanal craft, cities and their regional topography, music, Opera and Ballet, folk traditions, theatre and of course – “la dolce vita”.

To further enrich the visitor experience included in the entrance ticket, on Thursdays and Fridays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., the tailors, coming directly from the Dolce&Gabbana atelier, animate the exhibition in order to offer an authentic and dynamic view of the creative process at work.
