Fashion Show Invitations #1
i thought this is quite interesting, so have a look

Quote:
Paris June 27, 2003 - Designers, in order to communicate a mood, express a personality; to catch a jaded fashionista's eye, they often spend a lot of time and money working on their invitations.

Naturally to some it's a last minute thing: a name, address and date printed on a card and, "Voila!" There's your invite.

For the current round of spring 2004 Paris men's wear shows, starting Friday, both Dries van Noten and Dior Homme thought big. Big, as in huge.

Van Noten's invite is an enormous folded rectangle crisscrossed into shoe prints with his name that doubles as a template for dance steps.

Dior Homme's invite is actually a large black envelope, but contained inside is another poster of oversized proportions -- this time it's a photo of black electrical cable on a hard concrete floor. Very urban, very Hedi.

But proving that sometimes the best things come in the smallest packages, FWD loves Paul & Joe's show invite of a packet of genuine cigarette papers with the attendee's name stuck on the inside.

Not that the label's designer Sophie Albou is encouraging any sort of nicotine-related activity, but in today's regulation-riddled world there's something ever so wicked in the suggestion

Fashion Show Invitations
elle.com did a piece on these...

Quote:
In a world full of electronic, well, everything, there's something almost quaint about the paper invitations that pile up on the desks of the style set in anticipation of New York's famously frenzied Fashion Week. But while the medium may take a page from Miss Manners, the aesthetic message is always ahead of the curve. From Anna Sui's psychedelic stained glass motif to Jeremy Scott's trashy chic French fry container-cum-invite, this year's crop of cards is both bold and beautiful (the better to get the famously jaded fashion press to sit up and take notice, sweetie darling).

Heatherette's invite seems almost imature.. I expected something wilder and bursting with creativity like the brain itself... Haha
Anna Sui's and Charlotte Roson's are great

oh nice ideas! : ) i also like the paris hilton one
but charlotte ronson's is just her name with an old illustration by Dulac, and heatherette's purple invite looks like it was done by high school students.

is the jeremy scott one there?
