This month on ‘Talk Asia’ CNN’s Anna Coren meets Italian fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana in Hong Kong. The pair, who recently created headlines around the world over controversial comments they made about IVF, speak candidly to CNN about their stance on love, marriage and children. They also openly discuss their relationship – both as intimate colleagues and ex-lovers – as well as where their multibillion dollar fashion empire is headed 30 years after founding it.

In a rare excursion, Coren then takes Dolce and Gabbana to the heart of Hong Kong’s garment industry to get their take on upcoming trends and what fuels their inspiration. They explain why the Chinese market is so crucial, and why they think the Chinese are similar to the Italians when it comes to their appreciation for luxury.
