Models Walked Down the Gucci Runway Carrying Dragons, and That's Not Even Half of It
Milan Fashion Week kicked off with some interesting shows, and among them was Gucci. Alessandro Michele debuted his creative vision for the fashion house's Fall 2018 collection, and the show, depending on your taste, might inspire or confuse you. The designer sent 90 men's and women's looks down the runway, ranging from brightly colored accessories to sequined dresses. However, since the collection's debut, the designer has been accused of cultural appropriation for having models wear turbans.
The props, however, pretty much stole the show. Models carried dragons, snakes, and even a head down the catwalk. The runway space itself was set up like a surgical operating room. Gucci explained on Instagram that the room was meant to reflect the work of a designer, "the act of cutting, splicing, and reconstructing materials and fabrics to create a new personality and identity with them." With that in mind, take a look at Alessandro's latest collection ahead.
