Rick Owens | Spring Summer 2014 Womenswear | Vicious
I am not a big fan of Rick Owens, but after watching his SS14 Womenswear show my perspective about his fashion aesthetic changed. I was left 'bouche bée' by the cast of synchronised black women, which came in all shapes and sizes, stepping it up on the catwalk in such an aggressive but powerful way of communicating their African-American pride and tradition to the Paris fashion crowd. I was amazed by how they kept their 'stank' face on from start to finish; such a great energy (have you noticed all the pompoms falling off the dress), not to mention that the folds of each garments enveloped the dancers gracefully which enabled them to move freely. What a great show and celebration of Black history.
