    "Anyone know what this word(s) should say?"


    Dior... Eshu (Or the Correct spelling Esu) in Yoruba means God of the Dead or "Devil"....

    and I have not seen video footage of the show but if the drumming is Related to Yoruba tradition then my guess is that it is from an instrument called the Talking Drum...

    I really like the collection but some of ideas are culturally inaccurate... but that is that comes with the territory of an outsider looking in and trying to inteprete what he sees...
    overall though it is one of his strongest collections ^_^

    My fav. collection is the moment of the rain fallin' on the runway.
    I'm not sure what year may be 1997 or 1998.:heart:

    That molded leather corset with the stitching is fantastic in person. It was featured at the Gothic exhibit at FIT.
