Average Estimated Salary (in NYC): $54,400
Remember when Karl Lagerfeld turned Paris' Grand Palais into a supermarket for Chanel's FW14 collection? Also, basically the insane awesomeness of every Moncler show? There are a team of individuals who work with designers to build the ambiance of the fashion shows that go down every fashion week. For the most elaborate sets (like the ones we're referring to) the salaries are much higher than the average stated above. But what's really cool is the task of bringing a designer or photographers story to life. Editorial set designers often have to work magic by turning a studio into a beach or making it look like December in the middle of July. That takes some serious skill and imagination that can demand a hefty payday.
