Best advice for simulating the opening of a round canopy parachute?

I need to simulate the unfolding of a (round canopy) parachute - more or less. It doesn't have to be physically accurate. It also doesn't need to be in a single scene. I can make cuts. The viewer should just get the feeling that a parachute is being deployed. nCloth comes to mind, but I've never really worked with nCloth before, and I'm also wondering: Should I fold the parachute together and then try to make it open with wind, etc.? Or is that overdone, and there's a simpler approach? I'm grateful for any tips ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Here is nearly what I wanna do in real:
