I found that collecting a collection of invitation quite interesting because it does show the style and fashion statement in each season of the designer.I feel that invites are so interesting because they represent the intersection between marketing, fashion and graphic design it a combination that can represent the show.
"The invitation is the first opportunity that a designer has to share their new fashion statement to add a narrative to the style statement they are making that particular season. Their best they are a visual continuation of the creative thread that designers are wishing to share that particular season. Invitations still remain an essential part of a designer?s vocabulary/armoury and can veer from the classic and formal to the complex and conceptual. It is always exciting each season to get that first glimpse into their world."
