On Sunday, models graced the the runway at Diane von Furstenberg’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection show wearing Google Glass, the upcoming headset and eyewear device that the tech giant is developing. The augmented reality-enhanced glasses have many smartphone-like functions: users can take pictures, record video, receive messages and check calendars, among other things.

DVF's team took advantage of Glass's recording capabilities to make a short film about the show, released Thursday. The film, which is narrated by Furstenberg herself, takes viewers to pre-show fittings, backstage and down the runway in a little under four minutes. You can watch it above.

How did the collaboration come about? In an e-mail forwarded by a spokesperson, Furstenberg says she met Google co-founder and Glass project lead Sergey Brin over the summer.

"He had Glass with him and I tried them. We thought it would be very cool to do something together. So we decided to make a little film and to give an entirely new perspective on our show," Furstenberg said.
