The #DGfamily Project was born in 2013. It asks its participants to send a photograph of their own family: not even two years later more than 4,000 snapshots from 10 countries have reached the Italian fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. These designers of truly remarkable clothes – although prohibitively expensive for common mortals –, opponents of surrogate mothers (“wombs to rent”) and champions of the “traditional family”, have recently presented a surprising winter collection. It was an authentic ode to motherhood in bright colours and gentle shapes, affectionate designs dedicated to mothers and children; maternity of fabrics and maternity of the flesh. On the Milanese catwalk before a stage set with mothers and children of different generations, a multitude of smiling and radiant models paraded with their children in their arms or holding their hands. More often than not fashion and advertising do not hesitate to give a nod, out of interest, to political correctness. Dolce and Gabbana gave a nod to mothers instead. It was a sunny, comforting and optimistic message even for those who will never be able to wear these clothes.
