Floating Models: Fatal Fashion?
I discovered this video about a fashion show held in a Milan canal from fashion.psfk. I was mesmerized when I viewed it, because the show was unusual and somewhat morbid (perfectly Goth!). As fashion.pskf pointed out, when you mix a small budget and a high level of creativity you can conceive projects that seem genius. However, the video shots of crowds that lined the shores for the show also reminded me about an August 1969 weekend, when Hurricane Camille devastated Nelson County, Virginia, with flooding rains. Richmond residents lined the James River shores after the storm to try to spot bodies that floated among the debris so that rescuers could capture them before they floated out into Chesapeake Bay (see Roar of the Heavens: Surviving Hurricane Camille by Stephen Bechtel).
Just goes to show that a creative effort might entertain strange connotations for some folks.
