How to Spot a Fake Dolce & Gabbana

Updated April 17, 2017

Dolce & Gabbana products are in high demand and can be quite costly. Before you fork over your hard-earned cash, you should learn how to tell a real one from a fake one. These steps will teach you how to spot a fake Dolce & Gabbana.

Evaluate the materials and fabrics. Make sure the materials used in the products are authentic and top quality.

Check the craftsmanship. All of the stitches should be evenly spaced with no loose threads. They should also match the material of the item in colour.

Check for any spaces between the names of the designers. A real item from these designers will have a logo with the spaces intentionally omitted. If there are spaces between the names, the item is definitely a fake.

Look for holograms and stitching that reacts to ultraviolet light, which is a sign of authenticity. These details were added by the designers to protect against counterfeiters.

Buy all items from official websites and stores to guarantee that you are getting an authentic product.

Warning

Don't buy designer products from street vendors or shady sellers because chances are their goods are fake.
