Runway shows often consist of beautiful, slender, tall models who effortlessly strut down runways in designer and couture clothing to captivate audiences.

Well it seems as though, well-known designer, Rick Owens, decided to switch things up by employing the services of a step team.

No familiar faces nor famous names were on that stage. Members of the step team, of mostly minority races, modeled and performed in his Spring 2014 collection at Paris Fashion Week.

It’s actually quite daring for a designer to make such a risky decision but it is also encouraging as a lack of diversity has been an issue in the high fashion world and a current hot topic of discussion.
