Fashion Week 2016: See 21 of the Best Runway Sets

Inflatables, arched tunnels, and mirrors galore

This week marks the end of another "Fashion Month," the maniacal biannual extravaganza that takes the global fashion community to a billion and two runway shows at fashion weeks in New York City, London, Milan, and Paris. While the new garment collections are the rightful stars of the shows, we can't help but obsess over the many incredible venues and sets where designers have chosen to present their visions. Here's a look at some of the best we spotted this season—spoiler: inflatables, arched doorways, and mirrored effects are right on trend. Take a look.
