Los Angeles, April 4: Italian fashion icons Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana aren’t convinced by singer-turned-fashion designer Victoria Beckham’s designs and think she’s in the same league as high street brands such as H&M and Zara.
Dolce and Gabbana are close friends of the former Spice Girl, but admit they don’t rank her in the same league as designer John Galliano, reports contactmusic.com.
“‘She’s a friend. She make a good job but … for us, she don’t make the same way like a fashion designer. She become after many, many, many different things. She’s a designer but…,” said Gabbana.
Asked to clarify if he is a fan of Victoria’s designs, Gabbana replied: “She’s a fashion designer but it’s another… it’s different. John Galliano is a designer… Alexander McQueen.”
Dolce explained that “Victoria Beckham, Zara, H&M were “professional” designers and claims Italian fashion and British fashion are “completely different”.
He said: “(Italian fashion is) more cool, more trendy.”
