about this item

With a foreword by celebrated designer Anna Sui, and rarely seen material from the great fashion houses, Invitation Strictly Personal lets you share in the fashion show experience!
 
The fashion show invitation is a statement of intent, providing the first inkling of the designer’s vision for that season. Invitation Strictly Personal presents a unique collection of 300 invitations that span the past four decades, from both ready-to-wear and haute couture houses in the fashion capitals of New York, London, Milan, and Paris. Here are some of the key, unforgettable fashion moments such as Alexander McQueen’s Memorial “Show” at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Stella McCartney’s first show for Chloe, and John Galliano’s return to the runway in spring 1994 with the support of Anna Wintour. Most of the invitations come from the personal collection of award-winning author Iain Webb, accumulated over his years as a fashion correspondent. This unique volume also features program notes, lookbooks, posters, and promotional objects—all rarely available outside the fashion industry.
