The modern baroque fashion silhouettes in the Dolce & Gabbana 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection don't only stand out with vibrant cut velvet or sumptuous embroidery, but strike the audience with the runway's bold reference to the Catholic Church and its "artistic glories of faith and power."
The Fall 2018 runway began in a rather futuristic way with eight drones, carrying the season's handbag selection. After this, the procession took a sharp turn and embraced the stylistic values of modern baroque fashion with strong references to the Catholic Church in "exquisitely crafted Vatican City vestment brocades" and glamorously patterned suits with era-appropriate embroidery.
Toward the show finale, a girl who wore a black suit and a clerical collared shirt swept the floor behind the modern baroque fashion ensembles. Not only a nod to Catholic traditions, this one was also a humorous reference to how Dolce and Gabbana first met.
