Every year, fashion industry titans compete to outdo one another and create a memorable experience showcasing their new collections. Some fashion houses have accomplished this by designing one-of-a-kind stage setups for their shows.
Designers have also gone above and beyond the traditional fashion show locations of New York and Paris runways, opting for incredible venues that complement their shows' themes.
Here are 4 of the most outrageous and memorable fashion shows ever.
Moschino New York Subway 2020
New York City is no stranger to incredible fashion shows, but Jeremy Scott's Moschino show, which featured looks for the Fall 2020 season, gave New York fashionistas something to talk about.
Rather than the typical New York City catwalk, Scott created a fashion show centered on the iconic New York subway experience.
Models strutted their stuff on subway cars and transformed into fashion runways.
Moncler Grenoble New York Grand Central Station 2011
The Moncler Grenoble event in New York City in 2011 was another creative use of setting in a fashion show.
This fashion house relocated its catwalk to New York's legendary Grand Central Station.
The event was staged as a flash mob and featured Moncler's Fall 2011 collection.
Instead of an audience of celebrities, socialites, and fashion industry experts, the show was staged as a memorable spectacle in front of commuters.
Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda 2021
In September, Dolce and Gabbana presented their stunning fall 2021 collection to the world's elite in Venice, Italy.
Dolce & Gabbana's Alta Moda show was held in Venice's St. Mark's Square and featured stunning looks for the upcoming season.
The show evoked the spirit of Venice, the Renaissance era, and the colorful creations of the city's annual Carnival, which takes place each February.
Pierre Cardin Silk Road 2008
Pierre Cardin raised the bar for fashion by locating his Spring/Summer 2007 collection in China.
He invited executives, A-listers, and others to an extravagant fashion event on Whistling Sand Mountain in Dunhuang, China.
This was the location of China's famous Silk Road.
The stunning, ethereal gowns were modeled by figures walking along the region's dramatic dunes.
When it comes to staging their collections, famous fashion designers face a significant challenge each season.
Every year, the goal is to create an unforgettable show.
These designers and fashion houses have raised the bar with exotic locations, one-of-a-kind settings, and stunning looks that have made an impression in the fashion industry.
