Last year, we were all shocked when Dolce & Gabbana were in court for a tax evasion scandal. We were even more shocked when they were sentenced to 20 months in jail! After months of legal battles, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Italian court has made their final decision. The design duo behind Dolce & Gabbana, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, will be going to jail for 18 months for $540 million worth of tax evasion.

About a month after the original verdict was made, the design duo made a statement that they would be forced to close if they had to pay a $455 Million USD fine. No word on whether or not the duo are actually planning on shutting down stores, but I guess only time will tell!

What do you think will happen to the brand now that Dolce & Gabbana have been sentenced to 18 months in prison?
