Dolce & Gabbana Fires Back At Melania’s Critics With #BOYCOTT Shirts

Most fashion brands would rather avoid any attachment to the political world in fear of acquiring the ire of pro or anti administration groups.  That is certainly the case with the United States. Ever since Pres. Donald Trump got elected, countless fashion houses in the country have rejected or stayed away from anything that can connect them to the first family so that anti-Trump supporters would not go after them.  However, Dolce & Gabbana went down a different route and fully accepted its association with the First Lady herself, Melania Trump.

Just last week, Dolce & Gabbana has released its first ever troll shirt in the market that costs $245 dollars. Dubbed as the #BOYCOTTDOLCEANDGABBANA shirt, the Italian fashion house unveiled the politically stirring mock shirt in response to the boycott campaign established by the Anti-Trump supporters. A couple of days ago, the D&G Company has tweeted that they are going to boycott themselves. It was then followed by a promotional video featuring a fake protest where people are encouraging others to boycott the veteran fashion empire.

Dolce and Gabbana was never afraid to show their love for the first lady as Stefano Gabbana himself posted, liked and shared  photos of Melania Trump wearing D&G clothing for different occasions. He even thanked the first lady for wearing their products and appreciating their work by posting a photo of her wearing a Dolce & Gabbana denim jacket.  That particular post on his Instagram account garnered various praises from Trump supporters and loyal brand admirers.

Melania returned the love by constantly wearing drool-worthy D&G clothing pieces on her various international trips, one being her recent visit to the Pope where she wore a whopping $51,000 dollar silk floral jacket. It is said that this particular jacket caused the criticism and prompted Anti-Trump supporters to turn against the famous fashion brand.
