Last night's Opening Ceremony NYFW show had models falling all over the runway. We've already seen a couple models take some nasty spills this Fashion Week, thanks to Givenchy's concrete runway, but these tumbles were actually orchestrated.

Creative directors for the brand, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, called on the help of the New York City Ballet to present their newest collection. The dancers choreographed their walk, which included the many trips in the midst of a very graceful routine.  

“It was about breaking the monotony of the runway,” Leon explained to Dazed. “We wanted to challenge the idea of what a fashion show is.”
