Tim Burton's Magical Fashion

For their fall issue, Harper's Bazaar added an unexpected twist to one of their spreads. The shoot took place in a field and was dark, whimsical and so very fresh...or as Rachel Zoe would put it-BANANAS. Designers ranged from Gaultier to Balmain to Chanel. Who is the director you might ask? Well none other than Tim Burton.

Who else to get you into that Halloween spirit, than legendary filmmaker Tim Burton? A close friend of Johnny Depp, the artist is responsible for almost any spooky and quirky film you can imagine. Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Sleepy Hollow, Sweeney Todd--you name it and chances are Burton is the man behind the scenes.

Starting November 22, Burton's retrospective will be on display at the MoMA in NYC. The exhibit lasts through the end of April 2010 and consist of roughly 700 "drawings, paintings, photographs, storyboards, moving-image works, puppets, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic ephemera," many from the filmmaker's own personal collection!
