Inspiration No° 2: Oversized Self Belt with Swarovski Buckle
Kati Stern, who is known for mixing fur with the finest fabrics, is the fashion designer behind Venexiana. I had the opportunity and privilege to attend her show at the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week in Bryant Park. The new Fall 2009 collection boasted sixty-six new looks, all of which were breathtaking and elegant. I’ve never really been a lover of fur, but Stern’s designs could easily entice me to have a change of heart. My inspiration No°2 are the oversized self belts with Swarovski buckles seen in the photographs above. While House of Papier regularly incorporates Swarovski crystal and buckles in our invitation designs, these two Venexiana pieces gave me great inspiration for a new way to adorn both invitation inserts and the silk box that holds them.
