Dolce and Gabanna: In Trouble Again?

As you may or may not have heard, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabanna have incited the outrage of the entire fashion world due to their statement about "synthetic children". In a such a socially advanced world, it's no wonder that everyone from Olivier Rousteing to Elton John had something to say regarding this statement.

Their latest collection at Fashion Week, one of my personal favourites thus far, featured models on the runway with their children and celebrated motherhood. There is absolutely nothing wrong with honouring mothers but in today's modern world, condemning other forms of parenthood seems entirely out of place.

I know that you may have already heard your fair share of commentary on the issue, but I could not resist expressing my dismay at such tactless commentary from the designers. Though they may come from a more traditional background, the fashion world is a place for crossing boundaries and accepting all definitions of gender. Is it possible that certain individuals still aren't quite ready for a more modern society?

After this outrageous anti-IVF baby comment, a boycott Dolce and Gabanna post was published on Twitter by Elton John.

What do you think of this decision? Will you be boycotting these designers?

Ponder It,
