Confessions of a Rick Owens Stepper, Shauntele Dishes on Her Experience

dancer and designer Shauntele

Rick Owens’ Spring 2014 RTW fashion show caused quite a stir in Paris. Instead of super thin models showcasing the high-end designer’s apparel, he opted for shapely brown models with angry faces. The steppers were comprised of a few dance teams, including Soul Steps, who began practicing for the big September performance in May. To give us a better idea of how this went down we caught up with Shauntele, who was a stepper in the show with large dreams of one day making it big with her own fashion line.
