The dreams behind the designs

An immersive exploration into the narrative behind Dolce & Gabbana’s couture collections, the exhibition invites you to participate in the artistic process of bringing their creations to life, from the dream to dress.

Discover the sources that spark the designers’ inspiration and learn about the intricate craftsmanship that goes into the final pieces, embodying the values of Fatto a Mano – or hand-made. Featuring one-off items from their Alta Moda, Alta Sartoria and Alta Gioielleria lines, each room of the exhibition will display Dolce & Gabbana’s bespoke creations against a backdrop of spectacular installations that plunge you into the heart of their world.


"Step into the world of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, where magic and fantasy, legend and reality intertwine"

Florence Müller, exhibition curator

A love letter to Italian culture

The expansive sources of Dolce & Gabbana’s inspiration unfold before you as you move from room to room, each space an homage to a facet of Italian culture that has informed their work.

Spanning art to architecture, the topography of cities to music, ballet to opera, each theme is simultaneously rooted in the two founders’ abiding love of traditional craftsmanship, their Italian heritage, and passion for la dolce vita. 

Plus, woven into the exhibition will be work by visual artists created in dialogue with Dolce & Gabbana’s celebrated designs.
