Renato by Carlos Reyes, an haute couture brand, presented a stunning exhibition of dream dresses and pieces. The “Myth of Eris and the Resistant Unicorn” exhibition, which features surrealist symbolism on the clothes, tells the story of a young girl who goes to bed and dreams of what she sees.

Reyes stated that nightmares and dreams inspired the show with mythological symbolism.

A large cameo box is found at the center of the model. It’s crowned with the words “Mortem,” which means “death” in Latin, and “Saltare,” which means “dance.” The box contains the image of a ballerina in “Destino,” a short film made by Walt Disney and Salvador Dali in 1945. In addition, the French phrase “Le disco de Besoin de Vous” is printed on the box.

Reyes says, “The whole thing symbolizes death or dancing.” You can either be bored and lifeless or merry and dance. The journey of the unicorn is to choose dance.
