Eight years later, the Canadian duo moved to Italy with their sights set on creating their brand. In 2002, they premiered their first women’s wear line during the Spring-Summer 03 Men’s Collections runway show in Milan. The debut of the first women’s runway was in 2003, with the collection, “Star 24/7”. Dsquared2 has a long history of collaborating with celebrity artists and designing special costumes for the likes of Madonna, Christina Aguilera and Beyoncé.
