Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana continue their commitment to encourage young creative talent with a special project in support of the Japanese designer Tomo Koizumi. Vivid color choices, a meticulous study of volumes, theatricality of shapes, sartorial details, attention to body positivity and an unconventional idea of feminine seduction – all recurring themes in Tomo Koizumi’s artistic production – have fascinated Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana since the young designer’s first works, who thanks to the brand’s support will present his new collection in February 2023 during Milan Fashion Week. Dolce&Gabbana will support the initiative in its entire organization, hosting the fashion show within its spaces in Milan.
Koizumi is known for his hand-sewn, voluminous, ruffled dresses, made from Japanese polyester. His work has featured in publications including Eyescream, WWD Japan and Nylon Japan. In 2019, the Metropolitan Museum of Art showcased his designs in the Camp: Notes on Fashion exhibition. He has been shortlisted for the 2020 LMVH prize.
Tomo Koizumi: “I am really honored to be able to present my !rst Milan fashion show with the great support of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. Dolce&Gabbana has brought to life so many iconic designs that I have admired since I was a child and have continued to inspire me to this day. This fashion show will be my first abroad since the pandemic – I really appreciate being able to celebrate this important moment together with the great Dolce&Gabbana family.”

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana: “Tomo is a volcano of ideas, energy and vitality, and his fashion is proof of that: the clouds of organza, the bright colors, the elegance and lightness of the shapes of his clothes clearly convey the deep creative process behind them. We are happy to be able to be by Tomo’s side on this very special occasion and bring his art together for the !rst time in Milan.”
