Turkish designer Dilara Findikoglu’s Spring/Summer 2018 Collection, which was showcased at the altar of a Catholic church, had an element of Victorian Goth combined with satanic imagery.
“Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.” Jude 1:13 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: As shocking as these photos are, we should not be surprised to find a demonic “fashion” show taking place in one of England’s most famous Catholic churches. All of the Devil’s “heavy hitters” were on display at this show as we see Illuminati, Masonic and occult imagery and symbolism all over the place. The priests at St. Andrew’s church seem quite pleased with the show, and of course, the revenue it generated. Exactly what you might expect from an organization the Bible refers to as the “whore of babylon” in Revelation 17.
Rapper Brooke Candy and drag artist Violet Chachki were within her troupe of heavily made-up models that strutted to the soundtrack of 80s dark wave and traditional belly-dancing music.
The Turkish creative made a name for herself two years ago at Central Saint Martins when she held a guerrilla presentation for the students whose work didn’t make it into the official press show.
Growing up with Muslim parents in Istanbul she admitted wanting to explore constantly. She told Vogue magazine that became fascinated with parapsychology, the occult and ‘magic stuff’ – which clearly shows in her unusual designs.
Dilara treated fashionistas to an array of face tattoos, tartan and lace at St Andrew Church in London. Off the catwalk, her quirky designs can be found in Selfridges in London and have been worn by the likes of Rihanna and FKA Twiggs.
For her show on Monday night, Dilara transformed St Andrews Church, in London, into a graphically satanic runway. Fashion insiders lined the front row as models strutted their stuff down a checker board catwalk. The set was dominated by a towering backdrop packed with symbolism from tarot card imagery.
Dilara’s occult influences were evident in the ensembles she unveiled. One model looked eerily pale as she appeared in a shredded cream outfit apparently inspired by a corpse bride.
Another wearing a daring black and white ensemble had her mouth covered in bone-like make-up. Several others had their faces painted in large symbols that appeared to be inspired by witchcraft. source
