The phenomenal changes nature goes through at the beginning of spring are one of the best sources of inspiration for fashion designers. The explosion of color, the intense yet delicate shades that the revival of nature brings to the surface is also the source of inspiration behind the latest Dolce & Gabbana makeup collection. Aimed to help women defined their features with elegance and sophistication. The collection is inspired by the breath taking gardens of Sicily.

According to Stefano Gabbana, “The creation of Spring 2011 was almost subliminal; it came directly from our hearts. It gave us so much pleasure to make something so special for the Dolce & Gabbana woman we know so intimately. Secret Garden is meant to be a key to her innermost soul, very personal, very private and, of course, extremely seductive.”

The mere presentation of the collection is enough to create a powerful impression especially on those who have a keen fashion sense as the golden shades accurately create the impression of opulence and sophistication Dolce Gabbana is well known for.
