Fashion calligraphy

Creating invitations to fashion shows, parties and cocktails is an art as much difficult as creating haute couture collections. If you ever had an idea that those beautiful cards are produced with printer you knew nothing about fashion. 


Beautiful cards with calligraphic hand writting are produced by this handsome guy whose name is Nicolas Ouchenir. He is the one trusted to make invitation cards to  haute couture Chanel shows and Miu Miu cocktail parties. He's got all influential fashion houses in his portfolio, for many of them Nicolas has been working for many years - Sonia Rykiel, Azzaro, Roger Vivier, almost al fashion houses of PPR Group (Francois Pinault specially likes Ouchenir's cards).
Nicolas's work differs from others 'cause he doesn't work with one particular font but can create thousands of them as well as card designs, the fashion house just has to define the style and inspiration. Nicolas spends hours a day to make patterns for Chanel or Pinault, at the end you'll get the invitation card which is the actual piece of art. There is no need to throw such cards away, your children could earn lots of money some day! Anyway Nicolas is the one calligrapher favoured by fashion houses and public.
