Domenico Dolce, Stefano Gabbana as well as their accountant sentenced to over a year in jail

Today, an appeals court ruled to uphold a lower court's guilty decision in the Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana tax trial. The designers were convicted of tax evasion last June after failing to declare 1 billion euros in income. The Milan courts sentenced Dolce, Gabbana, and their accountant Luciano Patelli, to a year and eight months in jail, plus a fine for legal expenses for omitted tax declarations.

The design duo, who have continued to show new collections each season despite the legal battle, previously told a Milan newspaper that they “want to go back to the clothes in peace,” and that the guilty verdict will likely shutter the design house.
