Rick Owens Spring 2014 Womenswear Paris

Following Iman Bowie and Naomi Campbell's recent call for the lack of racial diversity in the fashion industry, Rick Owens seemed to be responding and supporting it with his Spring 2014 Paris show.

Check the video to appreciate the fantastic mise-en-scène and choreography. Let's also remember Iman's quote hoping that things will change in the future: "I don't want to ever hear again a young model telling me that [casting directors] have said to her: 'We are not seeing black models this season.' To me that's offensive. To me that's a racist remark."

Spanish Sojourns: Robert Henri and the Spirit of Spain at The Telfair Museum

The Green Fan (Girl of Toledo) 

Spanish Sojourns is the first museum exhibition dedicated to the Spanish paintings of Robert Henri (1865-1929), one of the most influential American artists of the early 20th century. 

Henri traveled to Spain seven times between 1900 and 1926 and produced a substantial body of work inspired by Spain’s citizens and culture. His portraits span Spanish society—from famous dancers, dashing bullfighters, spirited gypsies, blind street singers to weathered old peasants.

It's currently presented at the Telfair Museum in Savannah, USA and will later travel to San Diego.
