Dolce & Gabbana's Expensive Message For Those Who Criticize Their Work With Melania Trump

Italian designers Dolce & Gabbana have been criticized by the fashion industry and fashion lovers because they won't refuse to work with First Lady Melania Trump. Other fashion designers in the industry have taken a stand against President Donald Trump and his politics by shunning his wife, a former Slovenian model. The Italian duo has been very outspoken against their critics, and are now mocking critics by putting out T-shirts calling for people to boycott them.

When Trump won the White House, before he even took his oath of office, designers began vowing that they would refuse to work with the first lady. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana stood out in stark opposition to those in their industry when they not only worked with the first lady, but tweeted images of her, praising her for her fashion tastes and glamourous outfits.

When Dolce and Gabbana were criticized for standing by Melania, they frankly told people where they can put their complaints. "F--k off," was Gabbana's response to people who slammed him for praising Melania Trump's look. He also told people to "Go to hell" if they didn't like it.

When people complained that they were disappointed in the designers, Gabbana responded, "I don't care. Really!!" and when people said they'd bought their last Dolce & Gabbana design, he responded, "Great," adding a heart emoji.

The backlash kept rolling in, and the designers either ignored it or defended their position. One Instagram post was a detailed, illustrated guide explaining 'What to Do with Your Opinion,' which showed just how to insert it into the rectum.

In May, the designers posted photos of the FLOTUS wearing one of their $50,000 floral coats on a trip to Sicily. In another post, they shared a photo of Mrs. Trump arriving at the Vatican in a black dress. They had a message for critics.

They're so secure in their stance that they've encouraged people to boycott them if they disagree. "Remember #boycottdolcegabbana please... remember the post Previous one," Gabbana wrote, indicating the 'What to Do with Your Opinion" post.

In their latest stunt to mock the #boycott movement, they've made their own T-shirts. The white shirts read, "#BOYCOTT Dolce & Gabbana." Below the message is a red heart. The T-shirt retail price is $245.

"No more Dolce&Gabbana for us! #BoycottDolceGabbana t-shirts are now purchasable on our online store! Link in Bio," the company posted on its official Instagram account.

A commercial shows a crowd of people wearing the shirt, chanting, "Boycott! Boycott!" They hold signs and wave flags. The two designers, also wearing the shirts, step out and join the crowds.

While Dolce & Gabbana has lost some business over the Trump debacle, there seems to be a lot of people in the fashion industry who just don't care whether the designers dress the first lady or not. There are also a number of people who have become fans because the designers took a stand for Mrs. Trump.

Boycotts don't seem to bother them.
