Rick Owens Goes For The Unconventional Route With His Latest Show In Paris

My sincerest apologies to those designers who were scheduled to show on the last four days of Paris Fashion Week. You’re all going to need to go home now; Rick Owens just killed the damn thing. The avant-garde designer, beloved for his “luxury gothic” sensibility and his most glorious leather jackets, eschewed all traditional runway stalwarts in favor of a cast of plus-size “steppers.” The ladies first marched out looking hella mean, then burst into what I believe to be a fascinating if somewhat alarming — and very, very unexpected in the context of Paris Fashion Week — dance routine.
