MAD Agency Shows

MAD Agency is famous for their lavish and intricate fashion sets.

Our runways are always created with the designer’s request in mind and with great consideration for the clothing that will be on display during the show. You have never seen so much effort put into each and every fashion show.

Sets that are rich in detail, often grand, and with no prim spared making these runways one of a kind. All aspects of the performance are carefully planned – from music, costumes for announcers, right up to the build itself – and they all come together to create a unique atmosphere that will surely transport you to different place and time.

Come with us on a journey of new and exciting discoveries…
