Paris Fashion Week is often discussed for the elaborate display of trends for the upcoming season, however, this year a German male model seems to have grabbed all the attention with his unusual catwalk, triggering a meme fest on social media. Interestingly, it was all a part of the show.

While closing Maison Margiela’s 2020 Spring collection by designer John Galliano, 20-year-old Leon Dame turned quite a few heads with his walk, where he can be seen dramatically stomping down the runway. The video was shared by the model himself on his Instagram handle along with a caption that read, “Closing Maison Margiela SS20.”

The viral clip generated a lot of buzz on social media and soon became a meme. However, Dame’s dramatic walk was all a part of the plan.

According to GQ, Galliano worked with movement director Pat Boguslawski for a year to choreograph the models’ walk. “John just wants people to be themselves,” Boguslawski told the fashion magazine. “The main idea is that he just likes characters. He just likes people who look interesting in general, and have something to say.”
