Drones, not humans, ‘model’ dresses at fashion show

U.S. & World

JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia (WFLA/CNN) – It’s a scene you don’t see every day.

An array of fashion dresses floated down a runway on flying mannequins without a model in sight.

In a somewhat bizarre fashion show at a Saudi Arabian Hilton hotel, drones were used to showcase dresses instead of traditional human models.

A spokesman for the Jeddah Hilton Jeddah told CNN the display takes place at the hotel bazaar every year for Ramadan. He said exhibition company decided to use drones this year instead of mannequins “to bring a change.” 

While feelings about the show were mixed on social media, video from the event has gone on to become a viral sensation.
