If you’ve been keeping up with the blog, then we’re sure you’ve read all about the Dolce & Gabbana tax evasion scandal. The designer duo are scheduled to do 20 months in prison and with the launch of new collections and opening of new stores on their plates, could this scandal actually be helping their careers? It really puts to question if all publicity is good publicity. Our friends at Fashionbi, the world leader in Business Intelligence for the Fashion Industry based in Milan, Italy, had the exact same question and provided us with some answers that we broke down in an infogram for you guys.
Though a lot of people were talking about the Italian designers, it looks like a lot of their fans were ditching them. Both their Facebook and Twitter followers decreased and the only increase they saw on their social media pages was an increase of jail talk. However, when you’re Facebook fans are at over 7 million and your Twitter followers are at over 1 million, do a few hundred thousand fans really matter? What do you think about these stats? Did the scandal change you opinion of Dolce & Gabbana?
