Church chants welcomed guests at Dolce & Gabbana's Fall-Winter 2018/19 runway presentation in Milan, with the gates of heaven used as a background to the catwalk.
"Fashion Devotion" read a golden sign over golden gates and a flurry of angels and clouds.
At the show's start, bells chimed, the gates opened and drones flew out, carrying the brand's handbags down the catwalk. Other references to heaven included cartoon-esque angels wearing sunglasses, which were on skirts and on a ornate bronze bomber jacket, with wings coming out of the model's back.
"Fashion sinner", "D&G devotion" and "Santa moda ora pro nobis" â“ Holy fashion pray for us - read some of the clothes, with reference to prayers.
The fall-winter 2018/19 collection also intertwined all of the fashion house's iconic traits such as black lace, tight-fitting black dresses, veils, references to Italy's southern traditions and costumes as well as flowers.
Other designs were bright and glittered and paired with exuberant accessories, such as a big pink wig, glass frames with cartoon exclamations and neon green fur stilettos.
