Diversity has finally hit one of the world’s renowned fashion weeks. Designer Rick Owens put on a show stopping (more like stomping) runway show for his Spring 2014 RTW collection at Paris Fashion Week.
Instead of the usual size two standing six feet tall models Owens used United States based all minority step teams in various sizes to stomp the runway. According to the New York Times, Owens sourced his steppers from the Washington Divas, Momentum , Zetas and the Soul Steppers. The steppers gave a fierce high energy performance that left some viewers in tears (including Rick Owens his self) after watching this ground breaking show.
Earlier this year Owens announced he would be opening a night club in London, UK. He intends to recreate the atmosphere of ‘Spotlight’, a night club in Paris. Apparently Rick likes to party too. He deserves it. Pop a bottle to a job well done.
