Dolce & Gabbana drones

Purse-carrying drones just flew down the runway in a Dolce & Gabbana fashion show

Just when you thought you had seen drones do just about everything, drones came out once again this month and did not disappoint.

Drones have disrupted industries ranging from construction to agriculture, and incited fears that drones are taking human jobs. But the latest group of workers who may fear job loss due to drones? Models.

Drones flew down the runway at Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall/Winter 2018 fashion show in Milan, Italy.  The show featured about a half dozen drones, each carrying a handbag from Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall/Winter collection. Human models walked out later wearing clothes from the collection.

The show, titled “Secrets and Diamonds,” was performed for an audience of about 600 people. Audiences members were asked to turn off the Wi-Fi function and personal hotspots on their cellphones — likely for the safety of the drones, according to Fashionista.

Drones are no stranger to the world of high fashion. In 2013, Lady Gaga wore a dress that looked like a giant drone and even flew a few feet  in it.
