Surrealist symbolism or illuminati ? The black-and-white checkerboard runway, the bird cages and faux plaster casts suspended over it, made the set.
Modern art and high fashion came together in Maria Grazia Chiuri’s 2018 couture collection for Dior. Inspired and a tribute to Argentinian surrealist Leonor Fini, the 20th century female artist known for her depiction of powerful women.
Leonor Fini 1936
She produced the most outré art, liked to cross-dress and had a penchant for living in ménages à trois. And yet, despite once being infamous around the world, Leonor Fini is all but forgotten these days.
You have probably never heard of Leonor Fini, even though she was one of the most photographed people of the 20th century. Queen of the Paris art world, she was constantly in the news – fêted for her paintings, illustrations, theatre designs and, above all, her flamboyant bohemian lifestyle. Her first exhibition was in a gallery run by Christian Dior, before he switched to fashion design.
This collection, Grazia Chiuri wrote in the show notes, is also a tribute to the “spiritual power of today’s women.”
WORDS ARE SPELLS
Most strikingly, French Surrealist phrases (temporarily) were tattooed across the models collarbones.
COLLARBONE TATTOOS WITH POLITICAL QUOTES ARE THE NEW STATEMENT NECKLACES
Each of the sayings was drawn from the writings of Surrealist movement founder André Breton, who wrote the Surrealist Manifesto in the 1920s.
Some of the phrases included “Au départ il ne s’agit pas de comprendre mais bien d’aimer” (“In the beginning it is not a matter of understanding, but of loving”); “L’amour est toujours deviant vous. Aimes!” (“Love is always before you. Love!”); and “L’imaginaire est ce qui tend à devenir réel” (“The imaginary is what tends to become real”).
It is a collection that will surely be remembered for its body tattoos – spelling out “Attitudes Spectrales”
Paying homage to the Cult of Saturn
237 + 732 = 969
Most of the models wore slicked-down hair with deep side parts, large eyeball earrings, and striking black eyeliner drawn
Staged in the Musée Rodin, transformed into a gallery the worlds of modern art and high fashion were framed together as one unified concept on the catwalk. Giant ceramic casts of body parts suspended from the ceiling, a predominantly monochrome colour palette provided the basis for an offering which sought to weave the wonderfully weird twentieth-century movement into wearable art.
Models were dressed as bird cages.

Some journalists / celebrities have linked this collection to the women’s feminist movement which has recently been at the forefront of “entertainment” and “political news”.
Vogue reported “In the light of the #MeToo and Time’s Up campaigns sweeping Hollywood, the sudden necessity for black awards-season eveningwear wasn’t lost on the audience”
In a sense, The all black-and-white palette – the color of the “blackout” at the Golden Globes contrasted with white, the symbolic color of the American suffragist movement, was maybe just coincidental. But the symbolism, with the models walking out and “breaking free” from cages that lifted dramatically from the runway, cannot be overlooked from the designer that has staked her claim on brand feminism.
Obviously women’s fashion magazines have lapped this up …
Elle’s statement …
“How does one design a dress in the age #Times up and #Me too”?
But remember they have also featured the Robot Agenda of 2030, Sophia being front page in their March 2017 edition.
Personally, I call bollocks on all of this. This isn’t progression it’s the POWERS THAT BE co-opting a phrase, While corporations put a price on feminism and make it a sellable concept that’s is dictated as any other statement by the whims of fashion.
Words are spells, masked Butterfly.
ALL is not what it appears!
Behind the scenes, the illuminati : powers orchestrate the decisions and movements of major corporations, industries and governmental bodies that affect everything in our lives from the environment to our universal human rights. They keep the average person consumed and preoccupied with trivial entertainment that is created to program and control our thoughts and minds.
Blatant programming is seen throughout this show.
1. Monochrome Set – White represents innocence, purity, the new initiate; Black represents ritual fulfilled, oath taken.
2. Birdcages – represents imprisonment, capture, escapism, controlled existence, slave.
3. Words are Spells (See above)
4. Masks – A mask is a way to conceal identity. It represents secrecy, lies, delusion and ritual.
5. Chequered flooring Masonic, signifies dualistic programming, twinning, multiple alters. Can also serve as a trigger for those under mind control to call up specific alters.
6. All Seeing Eye – Ancient Egyptian symbol for protection, good health and royal power. Eye of Providence: All Seeing Eye of God surrounded by a glory – golden rays. Interpreted as the eye of God watching over humankind.
7. One eye symbolism – s basically a salute to the Elite to let them know they are in allegiance with them and willing to push the assigned Agenda (similar to throwing up gang signs). Zechariah 11:17 references the Antichrist will be blind in his right eye. Although it deviates slightly, most doing this sign cover their right eye.
8. Mirrored Ceiling – symbolizes mind control, the fractured psyche, twinning: multiple alters.
If you haven’t seen The Rothschilds 1972 Ball I truly recommend you do so. To me this whole set up is some kind of ritual that mirrored the ball.
So are we to think that the Birds, symbolising escapism, which was also a reoccurring theme, from the birdcage hoop earrings and mesh cage dresses to the peacock feathers depicted onto bejewelled and fringed gowns, while painterly patterns were embroidered onto cocktail coats or printed onto A-line dresses veiled in tulle are a sign of LIBERATION or that we truly are IMPRISONED?
Many models were also crowned in dramatic headwear and veils – created in collaboration with British milliner Stephen Jones. He paid homage to Peggy Guggenheim, who showcased Surrealist artist Leonor Fini in her 1943 show.
A look at the collection.
Reminiscent of Rothschild Ball
A black-and-white checkerboard gown and matching feathered cape was particularly stunning
If this show was all tied into feminism, why portray women’s boobs?
All seeing eyes and one eye symbolism
Yin Yang Symbolism

Highly amusing and I must come back to the tattoos which were inspired by Breton. If this show was all about Feminism Which I highly doubt when you look at all the symbolism is that Breton was a notorious misogynist whom Fini abhorred for writing “the problem of women is the most marvellous and disturbing problem in the world”
So as you can see the puppet masters” are beavering away selling their vision and folks are lapping it up!
