Step Dancers Modeled The New Rick Owens Collection In Paris

The fashion show everyone will be talking about.

1. Designer Rick Owens debuted his spring/summer 2014 collection in Paris today. In lieu of models, Owens called upon a team of step dancers to show off his clothing.

3. … and took to the runway.

Wearing signature androgynous, monochromatic garb typical of Owens. Which was also probably pretty comfortable to dance in!

4. They performed a routine much more rigorous than mere cat-walking.

5. And the fashion crowd went mostly wild with praise.
