An Italian magazine; Panorama released a recent
interview with Italian designer s Domenico Dolce and
Stefano Gabbana and its landed the designer duo in a
hot mess.
Celebrities with Sir Elton John at the fore revealed the
interview by the creative directors of Italian luxury
fashion brand; Dolce & Gabbana was an attack on gay
families.
The interview translated via Huffington Post reported
that the designer duo states that children born through
IVF are “ children of chemistry, synthetic children.
Uteruses for rent, semen chosen form a catalog .”
Dolce also stated, “I am gay, I cannot have a child. I
guess you cannot have everything in life,” “Life has a
natural course, some things can not be changed. One
of them is family .”
Their recent fall-winter 2015 runway collection revolved
around a mother figure or “mamma ” in Italian.
Sir Elton John who has two children via surrogate was
angered by the interview and took to his Instagram
yesterday; 15th March 2015 in response to the
interview, “ How dare you refer to my beautiful children
as “synthetic”. And shame on you for wagging your
judgemental (sic) little fingers at IVF – a miracle that
has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and
gay, to fulfil (sic) their dream of having children. Your
archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like
your fashions. I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana
ever again. #BoycottDolceGabbana ”
One half of the designer duo; Stefano Gabbana replied
and it became a tussle. The ‘war’ then started with
other celebrities from Ryan Murphy, Ricky Martin and
more supporting Sir Elton John ‘s stand, the hashtag;
#BoycottDolceGabbana has since been trending.
Earlier today, the brand released a statement via The
Associated Press to state they are not against Gay
rights, “It was never our intention to judge other
people’s choices. We do believe in freedom and love,”
Gabbana says. Dolce conveyed that growing up in a
traditional Sicilian family affected his views. “I am very
well aware of the fact that there are other types of
families and they are as legitimate as the one I’ve
known”.
