  Following a three hour jury room meeting earlier this
   week in Italy Judge Antonella Brambilla found
   designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana
   guilty of tax evasion and sentenced the two to one
   year and eight months of jail term. The verdict 
   shocked the entire fashion world and comes as a 
   culmination, a case that dates back to 2010 and one
   that was originally dropped due to lack of evidence
   and has already seen Dolce&Gabbana pay heavy
   tax fines stemming from the label's 2004 sale to
   Luxembourg Gado, a move according to the Judge
   solely done to evade Italian taxes.
   The twenty-month sentence could pose a major 
   blow to the label as that amount of time will likely
   encompass four major fashion seasons
