Milan: Fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have been sentenced to jail for 20 months after they were convicted of tax evasion.

Dolce and Gabbana, whose clients include Beyonce Knowles and Madonna, were found guilty of failing to declare USD 1.3 billion in income to tax authorities, a website reported.

The fashion gurus were previously hit with a USD 440 million fine by Italy's Tax Commission following allegations they sold their company to a firm in Luxembourg in 2004 to avoid paying higher corporate taxes.
