Nokia reckons the skirt "explores the possibilities of smart technology and fashion." No arguments there.

Two burly chaps had to assist the lady as she departed from the catwalk -- presumably because the skirt weighs rather a lot more than normal clothes.

Lots of people from the fashion world turned up to see the skirt. I'm not sure if they were glad they made the journey through the pouring rain or not.
