Rick Owens S/S 2014
Paris, 26th September 2013. Rick Owens has raised the bar.
White chicks? Skinny models? Walk-pose-exit-straightface runway show? Forget those. We got something better for you: Rick Owens Spring/Summer 2014 show.
The show was a step dance performance. As if the show wasn’t unusual enough, the cast is truly something different from hundreds of shows we’ve been seeing from New York, London, Milan and Paris in this fashion month. It was performed by step dancer girls, and what makes it different is, the majority of them are black, and all of them are plus sizes.
Of course, there’s definitely debates of the presentation. Some love it. Some hate it. Some confused. Of course, when you see the runway pictures in Style.com you won’t see the usual thing. You’ll be confused, especially if you don’t watch the video of the show. But surely, you can tell something is going on.
I think the message is crystal clear. Fashion is an interpretation of visual beauty. And most of the time, fashion doesn’t represent universal beauty. Fashion often represents only one form of beauty: White and skinny. Which is a shame, because fashion should be representing universal beauty. And when you’re not of the “white” or “skinny” category, people value you self less. You sometimes, value your self less.
Even if it’s not the best collection, this is the best show, best casting of Spring/Summer 2014 for me.
Rick Owens is breaking all rules, murdering all stereotypes of fashion with this show. The message is crystal clear here: DIVERSITY ROCKS!
This is a “FUCK YOU” in the face for all stereotyping in fashion industry.

Pregnancy is one of those fleeting moments in time. Feeling a baby kick and seeing your body change, marks the beginning of a new journey in your life. The ability to freeze that moment and share it with your son or daughter when he/she is older, is truly a beautiful thing.
If only this moment could last forever! #Portrait http://www.beautifulimages.ca/family_portrait_promotion_aug.html #Photography #Toronto
Family Photography and Video session.
We were given the opportunity to capture the Anizor Family. I had a great time capturing their son’s vibrant and musical personality. I believe it will be a great video for them to show to their sons when they are older and to look back and remember these times.
