i thought we needed a thread about this. this could apply to fashion shows, fashion shoots, exhibitions, installations, theatre etc...

good idea, travolta! i don't know why i didn't see this earlier.
i love the lou reed poetry collaboration, i wish i could've seen that. the other image is also beautiful.
there is a special section for art direction and set design on this site www.clmus.com (thanks to lux*)

i especially love simon costin's work (which is no wonder since he mostly works with tim walker)

my favourite:

i love the shona heath pictures, a nice amount of chaos.
do you know of any sites where one could find the set design of fashion shows? most pictures seem to be reduced to the models ?

another nice costin design for lack of better sources

yeah, i really like the shona heath pictures too, i wish i saw more of this originality is fashion/ design editorials. i'm not aware of any site that would have the set design for fashion shows, maybe showstudio would have some info on the designers? or another comprehensive site? i wish i knew too, i'll let you know if i find anything.

also mm paris, i believe did some set design....

Wow, great thread travolta thanks!
I'll look into this more when I have a bit of time.
I especially love certain theatre sets and how they lend themselves to the mood of the play.

Sweet, this is something I would totally want to get into, I used to be a metal fabricator myself. I like the shots of empty sets too, that's something you don't get see a lot and it makes people forget all the work that goes into a shoot.
