There’s no place like Milano Fashion Week #mfw

D & G shoes with glitter and sparkle Repeat after Dolce & Gabbaba – there is no place like home, there is no place like Sicily’s Catherdral of Monreale, there is no place like the glitter and sparkle of the Milano Fashion Week runway.

The FW 2013 collection of Domenico Docle and Stefano Gabbana make liberal use of the shiny sparkle in the mosaic displays in the  cathedral in Palermo.  The breathtaking use of rich gold and red highlight the warm tones in the cathedral lush art.  There designs recall the minute detail that goes into the creation of the glass mosaic artwork which literally cover the ceilings of the this and many other churches throughout Italy.

Using several icons from the Catholic church such as rosary beads, lace, saintly images, crowns and dazzling jewels D&G have created a FW 2013 show just after the surprising message from the Pope – his dismissal.

Have a look at some of their designs and compare them to actual mosaic designs – notice the similarities?
