Los Angeles, Aug 28 (IANS) American fashion designer Rick Owens believes his fans takes his designs too seriously. The California-born designer, known for his statement drop-crotch shorts and leather jackets, believes that some fans are so obsessed with wearing his clothes, they have alienated others to feel part of his avid group of followers, reports telegraph.co.uk.
“It was supposed to be something that was very much about tolerance, about embracing everybody, but we’ve created this thing that has a wall that kind of eliminates a lot of people, and I regret that a little bit?.?.?. It’s been said before that most people take my clothes more seriously than I do,” he said.
The 51-year-old is known for thinking outside the box and famously tried to break the mould of using tall slender models for runway shows in Paris last year. He hired a US sorority dance troupe to stomp their way down the catwalk in his designs.
