On Friday, model Bella Hadid made an unusual appearance at Coperni’s Paris Fashion Week runway show, taking to the stage in nothing but a pair of white panties. There, three talented creators at Corperni Spray paint on her outfit right in front of the audience.
Hadid wore a pair of white heels and had makeup done to match the final look, which ended up in a white off-the-shoulder dress with a low-cut and thigh-slit skirt. The material is not made with traditional spray paint, but rather a thin, fibrous material made from rubber, which is eventually formed into something that resembles actual fabric.
Her hair is tied up in a high bun with some layered pins on her forehead. As she strode in front of the crowd, the dress received a standing ovation. Coperni has been recognized for its more experimental designs and won the ANDAM Creative Label Award in 2014, an award given to brands for their creative and commercial potential, and was a finalist for the LVMH Awards in 2015.
Also at the Coperni exhibition was beauty mogul Kylie Jenner, who wear a dress from the designer.

Coperni’s performance was held at the Salle des Textiles at the Musée des Arts et Métiers in Paris, and was invited only by invitation. The technique of spraying latex to create textiles was invented by Dr. Manel Torres.
“We wanted to dedicate this moment to Dr. Torres, because we respect what he does so much,” Vaillant said. Vogue. “We felt that it was absolutely necessary for him to lead the performance – for us, it made the experience even more magical.”
