From Retro Cabana Collections to Mod Couture Caftans

 - Oct 6, 2012
These Spring/Summer 2013 runway shows introduce the upcoming season's top looks. Lines from Calvin Klein, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu have been showcased at the New York, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks, setting the pace for the development of spin off lines and blog posts.

Retro cabana collections and mod couture caftans have been essential to these exhibits. Designers like Chanel, Whyred and Mugler have thought up novel ways to display their apparel, be it through elaborate windmill sets or cascading elevator displays.

These painstakingly detailed productions speak to the impressive art forms that are at the heart of fashion. The elements of lighting, music and performance are often just as important as the clothing, if not more.
