For those who think that art and technology can’t mesh – think again.
Dolce & Gabbana, one of the world’s most prominent fashion designers, has just made history by using drones to showcase some of their latest handbags.
According to Fashionista, the show started almost an hour late as guests reluctantly followed orders to turn off their Wifi and personal hotspots. Although there were a few disgruntled members in the audience, the moment the show began, it all became clear.
After 45 minutes – and what was surely a very stern talking-to from one Anna Wintour, who, later, lost her patience for the proceedings and leapt up from her seat after 40 minutes and several announcements passed – we learned what was so important: Drones. The gates to Dolce & Gabbana’s heaven opened up, and out flew a handful or drones toting a new style of handbag. They fluttered up towards the angels decorating the set before filing onto the runway.
The top-secret runway show, entitled “Secrets and Diamonds” has since become a trending topic on social media, inspiring millennials everywhere to consider what other technology-art crossovers might be possible in the future.
