Dolce&Gabbana Relies On Akamai

"Once upon a time, the importance of 'brand' in the fashion industry stopped at the style and quality of the clothes designed and presented on the catwalks," stated Henri d'Oriola, VP Southern Europe, Akamai Technologies. "Those days are long gone and, for a fashion giant such as Dolce&Gabbana, its brand value extends through everything that it does and especially to the Internet experience provided to its millions of customers worldwide. We are delighted to be working with Dolce&Gabbana to enable it to offer its customers a cutting-edge online experience to match the power of its brand regardless of wherever its customers are in the world."

About Dolce&Gabbana

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, the two founders, have always been the creative and stylistic source of Dolce&Gabbana and D&G, the two brands of the company, as well as the first directors of the company's growth strategies. The Group creates, produces and distributes high level clothes, leather goods, shoes and accessories.
