Is Orange the New Black for Dolce & Gabbana

Designing duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana of Dolce & Gabbana are facing prison time! According to this HuffingtonPost article, the fashion designer duo have received a possible sentence of a eighteen long months in prison for concealing hundreds of millions of euros from the tax authorities in Italy (the amount of money they have hidden to avoid paying taxes is equivalent to a startling $1.38 BILLION dollars).

Although this case was initially opened in June of 2013, the duo has just recently been handed a suspended sentence, meaning that they may not have to face time in jail. They do, however, have to face Italy's Supreme Court to hear the final decision regarding their misconduct. 

Dolce & Gabbana is not the first fashion powerhouse to get into trouble. Other noteworthy fashion designers who have had run-ins with the law include Giorgio Armani and PradaHolding, the company who controls Prada.  Perhaps this scandal will inspire the two designers to create a new line of prison wear? Only time will tell!
