Inspiration Board : Fashion Week Invites!

Posted by

Fashion Week is upon us! New York is currently a flurry of excitement as Fashion Week settles in. Sadly, in order to attend you need to be the recipient of one of the amazing invitations below. The next best thing to attending (in my opinion) is drooling over these little masterpieces. After all, shouldn’t the invite be a good indicator of what’s to come from the collection? If that’s the case, designers seem to spare no expense when it comes to how they invite their guests.
