Trippinfreude: Models Talk Falling On The Runways And The Sick Fascination Surrounding The Phenomenon

by Ross Kenneth Urken · February 14, 2011

One of the greatest buzz generators at Fashion Week remains toppling models who bite the dust in six-inch heels. Just check your Twitter feed for the exclamatory reports of the sort. In a video shot by Eli Obus , I spoke to models backstage before the Richie Rich Villionaire show to hear their thoughts on the falling sensation.

It turns out the fear of falling is a constant for models in anticipation of their strut down the catwalk, but no matter: the possibility of a wipe out is pleasant for spectators who often have a serious case of Trippinfreude, enjoyment in watching the models lose their footing.
