Watch a Fashion Show Choreographed by Dance Superstar Wayne McGregor

Oh, the dance–fashion love affair: It's absolutely epic, and tends to makes for absolutely fabulous collabs. The latest case in point(e)? British design house Cos' fashion show in Florence, Italy, which featured dancers clad in the line's new collection performing striking choreo by dance-world darling Wayne McGregor.


Streamed live this morning (Florence time), the show, titled Soma, marked Cos' first foray into the dance world. But it looked like a natural fit: The brand's simple, airy designs move beautifully. (According to British Vogue, they didn't even need to be altered to accommodate the dancers.) And McGregor—who choreographs for dance companies all over the world, and is currently resident choreographer of The Royal Ballet and director of Studio Wayne McGregor—created movement that felt as natural and breezy as the clothes.

Watch the whole show below. It's 15 minutes of dance, and fashion, heaven.

Enter the World of the Knicks City Dancers with 2 of Their Newest Rookies

Auditions rarely fail to deliver on suspense. But this? This was the nail-biter to end all nail-biters. Hayoung Roh and Chelsea McCloskey, both professional dancers based in NYC, had made it through what felt like endless rounds of cuts, both on Zoom and in person. Out of the nearly 500 dancers (from 30 states and nine countries) who'd answered the Knicks City Dancers' open call for video submissions, just 20 remained—McCloskey and Roh among them. "We were separated into six holding rooms, where we kept trying to figure out the math," Roh recalls. "How many girls are there in total? Who was called back?"

Finally, the women returned to the audition room to dance one last time—or so they were told. Instead, KCD head coach Alyssa Quezada dropped her bombshell: All 20 women had made the final cut. They would be 2021–22 Knicks City Dancers: the latest and greatest edition of one of the most prestigious NBA dance teams. "It was the biggest celebration and the coolest moment of my dance career so far," says McCloskey now. And that was just the oh-so-perfectly-dramatic beginning.
