When we see photoshoots being done in the movies, we see them going at a leisurely pace. The models can take their sweet, sweet time striking a pose, being sensual and comfortable in what they wear or don’t. But in China, things are getting pretty hectic, so models have to accommodate the fast pace.

Everyone that has laid eyes on this footage has been left with their jaw on the ground, seeing the model free-style poses as a camera shoots one frame per second. Chinese couture might be cheap, but the models who advertise it aren’t - every model that is able to strike a pose that fast demands up to $1500 per session.

This phenomenon isn’t new though. In 2014, an article in China Daily reported that models who work for high-end fashion chains get to wear around 150 clothing articles per day and strike around 700 poses. One model, working for the online shopping brand Taobao, reportedly manages to make around 30 poses per second!

Talk about fast fashion. If a camera takes a millisecond to capture a frame, why hold a pose for more than that? Taobao is China’s biggest online shopping website. They are like Amazon to the east and are owned by Jack Ma, the same guy that owns Alibaba.
