Flying drones almost replaced human models at Milan Fashion Week, we kid you not Image: AP
Do you keep tabs on the international fashion weeks just to keep up with the Hadid sisters? Or Karlie Kloss? All of their jobs might be in peril, as Dolce & Gabbana just got flying drones to model their bags on the runway. Cuz, who needs human anyway?
At their show at Milan Fashion Week, Italian powerhouse D&G made drones hit the runway to showcase their women's Fall/Winter 2018-2019 collection. Yes, actual machine-controlled flying drones.

Each drone carried a fancy-a** handbag from the collection (which BTW, are stunning as hell), and then later, human models showcased the clothing line collection. Everyone present at the 45-minute long show was requested to turn off their WiFi devices and hotspots. Now, we know why! It would have intercepted with the drone’s navigation, duh! (We ain’t that obsolete, after all, are we?)
Now, you know how our fellow netizens can get. They reacted to the news instantly, in their own style, of course.
Dolce & Gabbana replaced millennials on the runway with drones, proving no one is safe from being made obsolete by technology— Tyler McCall (@eiffeltyler) February 25, 2018
It is a bit creepy, we have to admit.
Dayam, that realisation hits hard.

Well, there's a point there somewhere.
Lol. I think people go to the show to see people. This is like like going to a concert to see a human perform and they have an mp3 payer on stage. Humans are a key part of people going to see anything. Otherwise they'd go to the store to window shop. Failed concept.— Hip Hop Beatz Online (@BeatzHip) February 25, 2018
We witnessed history.
That's really something. We have to wait and watch how this revolutionises the fashion industry.
