Iris van Herpen and Belgian artist Lawrence Malstaf created the installation in which models were held in midair between sheets of plastic.
"Models float in the air, embryonic, seemingly weightless and in a meditative suspended animation," said Van Herpen.
Tubes extracted most of the air from the sheets to suck them tightly around the models, who posed in foetal or crouched positions wearing shimmering dresses.
The plastic sheets were hung in a line along the centre of the catwalk used to present Van Herpen's ready to wear collection, titled Biopiracy.
The collection included 3D-printed garments created in collaboration with Austrian architect Julia Koerner, who previously helped design a dress for Van Herpen's Voltage collection presented last year.
