In Saudi Arabia, a fashion show was held without models. Instead of them, drones flew to the podium

In the country of Ramadan, but here came Dolce & Gabbana.

In early June, a fashion show was held in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, but drones were shown instead of models. One of the participants was the fashion house Dolce & Gabbana, who recently hosted a show with drones in Milan.

Several rollers were published by the show’s visitors: on them the drones, imitating the models, “defil” on the podium.

Other Twitter users took an unusual approach to fashion with humor and added that replacing models with drones is associated with the infringement of women’s rights in Saudi Arabia. Despite the fact that they will soon be allowed to drive cars, women are forbidden to appear in public in open clothes and with their heads uncovered.

As noted by TheNewArab, the fashion show coincided in dates with the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which in 2018 runs until June 14. These days, believers fast, including they are forbidden to see other people’s body parts. One of the organizers of the event said that they were preparing for two weeks and believe that this format is suitable for a religious holiday.
