Half-time at the hemi anechoic chamber

The first half of today's 'audio shoot' has yielded results far stranger, more pronounced and generally extrordinary that we could have hoped for. This is mostly because our model, Zora -who confessed this morning that she is studying sound at university- understands perfectly how to generate most noise from each piece. The maxi sequins of the McCartney gave splendid rustle; McQueen's ecclesiastical, metallic embroidery was more akin to the sound of thunder than tulle; the silk taffeta (and fur trim) of the Prada look swished and scraped like autumn leaves. Zora's well-practiced hula-hooping hip action made light work of the Maison Martin Margiela open-backed, lamé bodice with beaded fringing (pictured) and the waxed taffeta, stretch tulle and engineered print of the Christian Dior dress might be described as sounding like the crinkling of crisp bags - did it not look far more Romantic than that suggests!
