Costumes in Fashion: Tim Burton's Magical Fashion

From November 22, 2009 to April 26, 2010, The New York Museum of Modern Art will be presenting an retrospective exhibition dedicated to Tim Burton's career as a director, producer, writer, and concept artist for live-action and animated films.

In honour of this upcoming exhibition, Harper's Bazaar has published Tim Burton's Magical Fashion, a groovy-spooky fashion spread art directed by the man himself, Tim Burton. And all this in time for Halloween! (Ah, the magick of editing!)

This is not something I would normally show, because, as I have stated numerous times, I am not a fan of scary, gory movies or Halloween costumes and decors, but if designers such as Ferragamo, Jean Paul Gaultier, Gucci, Alexander McQueen (well I'm not really surprised by this one, after all, McQueen's fashion shows are more costumes than clothes), Rodarte and Yves Saint Laurent are ready to join the project, who am I to disagree?

Note: All pictures featured in this post were borrowed from Harper's Bazaar: Tim Burton's Magical Fashion and are by Tim Walker.

Do you feel the Halloween spell creeping into your house? Have you found the inspiration you needed to get your costume ready? Better still, have you got your costume yet? (I still can't make up my mind!)
