Implications - With 2010 being the 20th anniversary for Dolce & Gabanna, it was only fitting that the luxury brand did something provocative and interactive.
Co-Founders Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana explained that this unconventional method of reaching consumers could bring in a new audience, who may not have been exposed through other, more traditional means.
