Saudi Arabia Fashion Show Uses Drones Instead of Models, Looks Like A Horror Movie Scene

Instead of being impressed, people ended up criticizing the bizarre show.

While innovation is good, it does not always fall in the good graces of the public. Case in point is the recent fashion show held in Saudi Arabia, wherein drones replaced traditional models walking down the ramp. Instead of wowing the audience though, the show was criticized for having left an impression that ghosts were modeling the fashion creations.

Far from the usual ones that feature statuesque and almost anorexic-looking women or men with towering heights and well-chiseled bodies, the recent fashion show in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia was devoid of any model walking down the ramps and sashaying fashion creations. After all, the organizers of the show wanted to achieve something: Be different through innovation and to be appropriate for the holy month of Ramadan. Hence, instead of models, the show employed the use of drones to showcase the fashion goods.

The organizers of the fashion event spent much time and effort in planning the show.

Ali Nabil Akbar, one of the organizers of the event said:

“Everything involved innovation.”

The show was inspired by Dolce & Gabbana’s fashion event where drones paraded the Italian brand’s latest bags.

The Fashion House event, however, was not the first fashion show to feature drones modeling fashion creations. In fact, Italian fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana recently also used the technology in showcasing the brand’s creations. Unlike the Saudi Arabia event though, the Italian fashion show only used drones in parading handbags and not dresses.

As the drones paraded dresses, many people commented that the human-less fashion creations floating in mid-air looked like ghosts.

Despite the time and effort spent by the organizers in planning their innovative event, it did not only fail to achieve to make a positive impact: It was criticized, too!

With the fashion event’s use of drones to parade dresses midair as they swirled around a room in Hilton in Jeddah, many could not help but compare the scene to a horror movie as the dresses appeared as if they were being worn by ghosts.

Apart from feeling aghast due to the horror-feel delivered by the event, some people also pointed out that the fashion show was reflective of how women in the said Arab country are viewed. This is despite the fact that the kingdom have made some moves to address gender-related issues.

While some people are advised against owning pit bulls, reasoning that the breed is unpredictable and aggressive, one family hails their pit bull pet for saving a family member. For them, they would have not reunited with the two-year-old Charlee Campbell if not because of their dog, Penny.

The Campbell toddler went missing from her grandmother's home in Lebanon Junction, Kentucky recently, and was believed to have wandered into the woods. While Charlee is now out of the woods, literally and figuratively speaking, her family believes that she would have not been found if not because of Penny.

It is believed that Penny kept the 2-year-old Charlee company during her 2-day disappearance.

How far would people go to save the world from hunger and climate change? A group of Brazilian researchers has an interesting solution that could solve world hunger and global warming. The scientists have made a special bread that is reportedly cost-efficient and delicious at the same time. But are people truly ready to eat cockroach bread?

The researchers at the Federal University of Rio Grande (FURG) have proposed adding cockroaches into bread for a high protein snack. However, these critters are not the usual cockroach you might find running around in your home. According to Lauren Mengon, the Nauphoeta cinerea or "lobster roaches" are bred in captivity and are only fed fruits and vegetables.

The scientists used speckled cockroaches for their special bread.

Putting a number on the chances of getting hit by a meteorite or any of the so-called 'act of God' is as difficult as it is rare, studies say. However, Percy England of Barwell, England would probably disagree. It was, in fact, an alleged 'act of God' that hit him and his dream, and on Christmas Eve too!

Imagine finding your brand new car with a hole in the bonnet? You probably feel hatred deep down your bones for whoever did it to you. It was perhaps this feeling that filled Percy, after he finds his beloved and brand new Vauxhall Viva damaged by a meteorite on the Christmas Eve of 1965.

Days before Christmas, Percy had bought a Vauxhall Viva HA 1057cc, a small family car, for himself and his family, only to find it damaged on Christmas Eve.
