I love fashion - and I have been to some fashion shows in the past. They are quite fun really.
But this Utube clip takes the biscuit! It is only a few minutes long and was made in 1972. The world was sinking into a moral abyss by this date - abortion, birth control etc, were by now legal in most of the Western nations. It was a turbulent period after the outright rejection of Humanae Vitae - the famous encylcal banning "the Pill". The encyclical was right of course, but took way too long to produce - 4-5 years of endless consultation and dialogue.
It is both shocking and magnificent in a macabre way - it is quite spooky and scary.
Some of the clothes are magnificent but the message they convey is possibly not a good one. I don't think it is a good meaning.
I think it is outrageous really, but I did enjoy watching it.

I really must thank a reader who sent me this link - thank you Ruth!
This 70 minute Utube film is worth watching!
This humble priest talks about how mankind has turned it's back on God, and what awaits humanity.
He exhorts Catholics to go to confession properly and with firm a purpose of amendment, otherwise the absolution is invalid. He talks about the reality of hell, Heaven and purgatory.
He talks about the theology of the cross and how we have to offer sacrifices for the conversion of others. If we don't accept the cross given us, then we won't do much good in life.
He mentions Garabandal, Fatima and the Marian movement of priests.
A BIT OF A WAKE-UP CALL!
