Balenciaga's pre Fall collection video. I don't know if I'm speaking for everyone, but as a designer, the creative payoff is reached when I see my clothes in a visual and sound environment that I created. When I design I imagine the girls sort of in a movie - in a scene with a specific soundtrack playing in my head. It's not like a painting to me -  you make it and your statement is done; it's design, not art. Your job isn't complete until the vision in your head is realized. I think Nicolas Ghesquiere envisioned this bionic vinyl skirt wearing 80's bitch from the get go and this is his creative thesis, not just the skirt on a hanger.
