Since I studied Fashion Design, I often look at my favorite designers for inspiration. Dries van Noten is at the top of that list. Especially for his treatment of fabrics with lots of amazing embroidery and beading, and his unusual sense of color combinations. So for this post I pulled out a book I own, to show you some of those fabrics. But when I leafed through it, I realized that maybe you already know about his clothes and have access to seeing them online. What you most likely have not seen, are the very creative invitations for his runway shows.
He is known for his productions in the unusual, often raw and industrial, places, where he holds both his women’s and menswear shows. The invitations often reflect the type of place, or the theme of the show. Take a look.
They are mostly out of simple materials and easy to adapt for a party invitation of your own. Let me know if it inspires you to throw a party (no fancy clothes needed).
