The fashion brand flew remote controlled quadcopters at the beginning of their Fall 2018 Runway show to display the new collection's "Fashion Devotion" handbags

Italian fashion label, Dolce & Gabbana ditched its cast of millennial models — some of whom are also royals — in favor of drones at its Fall 2018 runway show. The fashion house decided to go with more technological muses, by having their handbags modeled by actual drones.

According to Fashionista, the show was about an hour late, and featured an exasperated Anna Wintour — since the 600 people in the audience were not turning off their Wi-Fi connections when explicitly told to do so.


But, it was worth the wait, as out came floating several drones carrying the new collection’s handbags. After, real models were employed to model the clothes — not to worry about the D&G millenials, who starred in a secret show, Secrets and Diamonds,” the previous night. The Fall 2018 collection is called “Fashion Devotion” and encompasses elements of religion and divinity, with cherubs, angel decorations, and even a “Virgin Mary” sequined dress.
