Maybe it's just the health profession in me, but my God, more than the possibly notorious use of crosses and icons as fashion, these women really need to eat.

PS LOL at choy's comment!

I guess we can ask two of these ladies to stand in front of our Paschal procession.  No need for banners on a pole.

Which begs the question, do we approach and kiss when we see someone walking down the street wearing this?  Or light a candle and stand in front of them?

No, strip the ladies and burn the fabrics - then bury the ashes in clean ground. That's what a band of charitable parabolani should have done as soon as they stepped down that catwalk.  :police:  :laugh:

:laugh:  New idea - we'll all take a bus ride to the next fashion show these are held at and do this.  Perhaps these women could lock arms, and we could have a liturgy with a Church and iconostas made of people?  How modern!

I dislike the outfits very much.  They look ridiculous.  What bothers me more than the use of the icons is the use of the cross in these outfits.  Do they even know what they're wearing?!

He wrote in other thread he comes from Podlachian family. IDK whether he considers himself a Pole or a Podlachian.

I'm waiting for some bright young thing with more money than sense who'll think it's cool to wear such an outfit to an Orthodox wedding or Pascha. The poor girl won't know what hit her .... or who will get to her first - the priest or the babushki.  :o

I actually like a couple of these. Some are innapropriate, but I like the concept. It's not the first attempt of bringing byzantine themes to modern fashion though. Here are two others:

Nicole Miller 2006
Chanel 2011

Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

It seems a bit disrespectful to me.  I wonder what's on the other side?  Are they going to be sitting down on an coin


Which begs the question, do we approach and kiss when we see someone walking down the street wearing this?  Or light a candle and stand in front of them?

 :D

*Choke* I'm so glad I didn't have a mouthful of coffee while reading this!  The mind boggles!

Me too!

Funny! But alas, purely hypothetical possibility since real people never wear the stuff strutted at high fashion shows.

Watching this:

- Made me sick
- Made me realize why I am going right away to church for prayers (akthatist and panihida).

I do hope that The Lord forgive these people for their sick and mindless actions..
I will not be posting or participating here anymore.
They claim this is an Orthodox Christian forum.
Well, it is not!

I remember liking that Chanel line a lot. But Byzantine decadence is quite another thing from trying to launch the haloed versions of band t-shirts.
