Moritz Waldemeyer has sent us some backstage images from Hussein Chalayan's Autumn/Winter 2007/8 collection, which was shown in Paris yesterday.

Waldemeyer took the photos himself while working backstage at the show.

In his second collaboration with the fashion designer, designer-engineer Waldemeyer produced some new mechanical dresses plus dresses with full video capability: each is covered with 15,000 individually controllable LEDs, meaning the surface of the dresses can display moving video imagery.

"Basically there are two dresses where the whole dress is a display," says Waldemeyer, who first worked with Chalayan for his Spring/Summer 2007 collection last year, engineering remarkable mechanical dresses with motorised flaps and seams.

"I haven't really slept in a week," Waldemeyer adds, "So if you will excuse me, I'm going to collapse..."
