Today, Italy's Corte Suprema di Cassazione found Dolce & Gabbana designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana not guilty on tax evasion charges, according to WWD. Their case, spurred by a 2009 fraud investigation, had previously been tried in two lower courts. The jury took three hours of deliberation before handing down the "not guilty" verdict. Several other defendants, all of whom work for the company, were cleared of all charges as well. The designers had strenuously maintained their innocence in the press, so this must be a moment of vindication for them. The wine (and pasta) will no doubt be flowing tonight in Milan.
