Fashion week is like a battlefield.
Who gets the newest ‘it’ supermodel?
Who has the hottest A-listers on the front row?
Who has the most influential collection?
But in the past few years, designers have taken this battle to a whole new level. Gone are the days of simply strutting down a straight line in gorgeous couture: we are in the age of the spectacle.
Fashion weeks all over the world have seen some truly avant-garde, bizarre, and truly awesome creations- and we’re not just talking about the clothes here! Scroll down for the 5 most awesome show sets of 2014:
5. Marc Jacobs A/W 14
The first of Marc Jacobs show since he resigned at Louis Vuitton did not disappoint! Dreamy clouds hung from the ceiling acting as the backdrop to his ever-dreamy designs.

4. Alice McCall S/S 14/15
Alice McCall’s latest show took the rustic, art-gallery setting of the Sydney Carriageworks and used this as inspiration for the theme of her show. The large avant-garde sculpture in the centre of the runway beautifully echoed the soft, pastel creations in the collection.
The real show stopping moment came in the finale, when snow started falling: magical!
Real car and petrol pump- check! Extra points for the road dividers on the catwalk and the speeding road visual in the background.
2- Chanel: A/W 2014
Chanel’s most recent ready to wear show Mr Lagerfeld reconstructed an
entire supermarket for his creations to prance through.
closely: Even all the products are specially designed by Chanel! They
were auctioned off after the show and all proceeds went to charity- see
fashion can be charitable!
