Although I am not in Paris for fashion week, I am ever so obsessively still following the shows there.
One in particular that struck me was Rick Owens’ display of his Spring 2014 Ready-To-Wear collection. He actually had a women’s step team from New York City present the clothes. The models were “real women” sizes, which means larger than a size 0.
Rick Owen’s innovation proves that clothes don’t necessarily need to be presented in the traditional way they always have been. The clothes are beautiful and the artistry still shines through, perhaps even more so through the chosen models. And as many a YouTube commenter has stated, the show can bring tears to the eyes.
Is this going to become the norm on runways? And will it increase the sellable-ness of clothing? Discuss in the comments!
Feast your eyes on the 11 minute long video of the performance: here or have a gander of the action below.
And by the way… Mr. O is from Northern California. Just thought I’d throw that in there. ;)
