Behind the Set of Fashion Week

Many of the designers showing at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2012 incorporated intricate sets to showcase their fall lines. The bold color palettes and textural elements of their designs are further enhanced through the incorporation of these elaborate sets. Award-winning architect Zaha Hadid adds a sense of playfulness and whimsy to the streamlined designs of Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel.

Other designers remove their work from the starkness of a white runway and add dimension through color, texture, and even reflection. Whether it’s to enhance the expressive lines of the design or to create a powerful back-drop, the sets of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2012 are something that no spectator could miss. In some instances, these sets stole the show! Enjoy the runway highlights!
