Fashion week is, of course, about the clothes. But in a bid for headline-hitting shows, designers don't stop there. Each season, the backdrops to the presentations get bigger, better and quirkier.
The creator's visions are reflected in the sets that are often beautiful – think Raf Simons for Jil Sander's stunning floral backdrop, elaborate – Louis Vuitton's train station setting had the audience amazed, or otherworldly. And it is Karl Lagerfeld who dominates with the latter, unveiling his latest wares in underwater kingdoms, giant crystal mazes and aeroplanes, just to name a few. Scroll down for the mesmerizing images of some of the most memorable fashion show sets to date.
