Saudi Arabia has just held the first ever drone fashion show.
In a strange twist, instead of having models showcase dresses, organizers opted for drones.
The event, which took place at the Hilton hotel in the Red Sea port city of Jeddah, had floating dresses on clothes hangers gliding down the catwalk, suspended from small black drones.
The show’s organizer Ali Nabil Akbar said that the decision to use drones was “suitable for the month of Ramadan” and that he wanted to create something “special” to celebrate the Muslim holy month.
WHAT IS RAMADAN?
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting (Sawm) to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran.
This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam.
The month lasts 29–30 days based on the visual sightings of the moon.
