INSPIRATION 'The Birth' by Leigh Bowery... Rick Owens SS||2016

The performance 'The Birth' by legendary Leigh Bowery and his wife Nicola Bateman [left] might have been an inspiration to Rick Owens SS||2016 collection [right], a tribute to female strength. In his show women were carrying other women in a beautiful physical symbiosis that wanted to express selflessness, community and supportiveness. Very different from Leigh’s concept of parturition, but visually very similar.
