The Thom Browne 2014 New York Fashion Week Religious Awakening fashion show featured models coming out of caskets.
The designer is known for his shocking fashion displays and eccentric concepts. The Thom Browne 2014 show was one of the most shock-worthy moments of NYFW 2014. The fashion show took place in an open loft space in Chelsea that was transformed into a church filled with pews, altar boys, burning incense and chic nuns. As crosses hung from the walls, the models walked out of opening caskets and strutted down the runway.
The Roman Catholic-inspired show featured Thom Browne’s latest designs which include Elizabethan crowns, wedding vials, voluminous Victorian sleeves and coats. The monochromatic colors add a dramatic touch to the already serious religious theme. The Religious Awakening Collection included supremely tailored pieces. Elizabethan period clothing pieces were designed with a morbid twist. From gory zombie-like models, to caskets, the show indefinitely shocked the audience.
