Milan, July 18 - Stefano Gabbana of Dolce & Gabbana
fashion house lashed out Thursday at a Milan city official who
commented on his conviction for tax evasion.
''You suck,'' tweeted Gabbana in a message directed at
Franco D'Alfonso over a newspaper article quoting the city
councillor commenting on the fashion team and charges of tax
evasion.
Il Giornale quoted D'Alfonso as suggesting that although
fashion is important to local business, ''we do not need tax
evaders to represent us''.
Last month, Gabbana and his partner Domenico Dolce were
sentenced to one year and 8 months in jail after being convicted
of involvement in tax evasion on almost one billion euros of
earnings.
The two founders of the iconic fashion house, who are
expected to appeal, were also ordered to pay compensation to
Italy's tax authorities.
Milan prosecutors had said that the creators of the
world-famous Dolce & Gabbana brand, with six others, evaded
taxes for several years after setting up the front company Gado
in Luxembourg.
The duo have received fan support in their fight although
one person tweeted in response to Gabbana: ''You suck - you earn
millions and do not pay taxes''.
