Supermodels, move over: Rick Owens wants real women

by Nayha Tandon.


It is safe to say that Rick Owens' 2014 Spring/Summer collection has been the one catwalk that's had chins wagging non-stop at this year’s Paris Fashion Week.

Owens’ catwalk evoked both racial and body diversity, stepping away from the size-zeroed Caras and Kates of the fashion world.
The minority became the majority with the use of black female step dancers taking over the catwalk with their military-style dancing and frowns fixed on their faces.

Owens’ recruited the step teams from the United States especially for his show at Paris Fashion Week.
It seems like Owens’ catwalk caused quite a stir, presenting a powerful and refreshing collection of fashion.
The models showed off Owens’ rock ‘n’ roll style collection through the use of layers and asymmetry, with a simple colour palette of greys, blacks and whites.
