At the Ukrainian National Home, in a ballroom-type space above the Ukrainian restaurant, right next to Veselka, Vaquera held their Fall/Winter 2018 show. Enormous chandeliers hung in the middle of the room and the models walked underneath on a floor strewn with confetti. The soundtrack was frantic. The models rushed down the runway, some of them almost stomping. The collection mixed a Vegas gambler with a lot of Christian imagery, there were nun uniforms but also blunted devil horns.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” Ephesians 6:12-16
