The Best Fashion Show Sets Of All Time

Is it because of or in spite of their ephemerality that fashion show sets have such a hold on us? Either way, these elaborate stages, which are part art installation, part time travel and teleportation device, are capable of transforming a simple catwalk into an extravagant event, transporting showgoers through space and time – and occasionally into otherworldly settings – through clever, and often elaborate, builds, and the smoke and mirrors that lighting and an outstanding playlist bring. Consider any of Chanel’s blockbuster sets (the rocket from autumn/winter 2017, the airport terminal from spring/summer 2016, the supermarket from autumn/winter 2014), or Louis Vuitton’s magical settings (autumn/winter 2012’s romantic train journey, or the playful all-white carousel from spring/summer 2012). Beyond mere stages, these sets are immersive experiences, as compelling as they are functional – and, now, insta-friendly too. From makeshift mirrored caves (Dior’s spring/summer 2018) to ghostly apparitions in the shape of Kate Moss (Alexander McQueen’s autumn/winter 2006), Vogue looks back at some of the best fashion show sets of recent times.
