XpanD brings 3D technology to the fashion catwalks of Paris

Even high fashion is going 3D. As unpredictable and unbelievable as it seems, XpanD recently brought 3D technology to Paris Haute Couture Week. Maybe 3D isn't just a fad after all.

No, the models didn't wear fancy 3D-ready glasses. Rather XpanD shot selected runway shows by world-renowned designers such as Jean-Paul Gaultier and Valentino in native 3D to be aired on TV in July.

Fashion shows doesn't seem like the most likely choice for developing 3D television programming, but it would be very interesting to see models in lavish clothes walk straight into the living room. Or it could be scary. Who knows?
