Thanks for clarifying LolaSvelt. I must admit I originally agreed with Trevo's comment. It's sometimes hard to gather a person's true meaning from a comment on the internet.

I loved the show; the clothes and the performance. It really brought some entertainment, and creativity (outside of design) to fashion week.

I don't know why people are insisting on seeing a social commentary in this show. All I got from it was that Rick saw a Step show, loved it, and decided to put a step team in his fashion show.

THIS!

At this point i understand that a fashion show is about a concept, and , maybe, the clothes are the last thing it matters. I loved the strong women, the energy of the show, and the response of the audience in there, and of course what he's trying to say about the industry.

That's not how you do diversity! showing forever on the palest of pale white girls and then one season everyone is black. that's divisive and somewhat exploitative to me. of course the step teams love it! that's their thing and to see it play on such broad stage internationally is great. I love the performance too! I just question it in a broader since in terms of fashion and human diversity.
These are excellent questions.
