Watch Opening Ceremony’s Models Turn Into Dancers At NYFW

New York Fashion Week raged on this weekend and lots of tall, thin women walked down runways staged to look like a variety of different things, wearing impossibly beautiful and sometimes breathtakingly ugly clothes, while celebrities and various hangers-on swanned about in the front row, taking notes and making appropriate frowny/smiley faces. It has been, for the most part, business as usual.

But, Opening Ceremony, the beloved brand of your quirkiest friend, has always tried to do things a little differently. Last year, instead of a runway presentation, they staged a one-act play co-written by Jonah Hill and Spike Jonze. This year, in homage to Frank Lloyd Wright, who designed costumes for his daughter who was a dancer, and in homage to the space where the presentation was, those wily designers embedded seven dancers from the New York City Ballet into the mix of models and had them fall into dance down the runway.

What a pleasant surprise! Fashion — not the worst, sometimes.
