"Models were suspended in vacuums between plastic sheeting during Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen's Autumn Winter 2014 show at Paris Fashion Week. Iris van Herpen and Belgian artist Lawrence Malstaf created the installation in which models were held in midair between sheets of plastic.
"Models float in the air, embryonic, seemingly weightless and in a meditative suspended animation," said Van Herpen.
Tubes extracted most of the air from the sheets to suck them tightly around the models, who posed in foetal or crouched positions wearing shimmering dresses.”
