It prompted the Italian fashion house, which blamed the remarks on a hacker, to issue a second, longer public apology. But the words may fall on deaf ears among the fashion and celebrity set. An anonymous source within Harper’s Bazaar China told WWD the magazine would not be shooting any Dolce & Gabbana products any longer.
The brand’s second apology said: “Our dream was to bring to Shanghai a tribute event dedicated to China, which tells our history and vision. It was not simply a fashion show, but something that we created especially with love and passion for China and all the people around the world who love Dolce & Gabbana. What happened today was very unfortunate not only for us, but also for all the people who worked day and night to bring this event to life. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to express our gratitude to our friends and guests. Domenico
