Project Description

Runway for Charity asked us to design the invitation for their second annual fashion event and runway show benefitting a local children's hospital. The theme of the event was Versailles, and knowing the decoration direction was heavily floral and gilded, we designed the invitation to be a lux piece fitting for a fashion forward gala. Pairing strong typographic forms with a delicate floral pattern, we did a modern take on Versailles. The event was a resounding success, with a generous crowd helping to raise close to $300,000.

Production Lesson(s)

Our biggest production concern with this pieces was having foil bleeds on both the sleeve and envelope (which we custom designed and converted). We didn't have any flaking with the foil on either piece. The Curious Gold Ray paper does show fingerprints, which required delicate handling.”
