The new year means a fresh start, but it also means a lot of extra work for NYC's mailmen and messengers as they gear up for February Fashion Week. The onslaught began early this year and invites are still coming in for shows, parties, and presentations. Just like the clothes themselves, invites run the gamut from eww to covetable, with a few WTF missives thrown in for good measure. We've worked overtime with our letter opener to separate the wheat from the chaff, and we've rounded up 11 creative invites that we think will have your peepers peeled wide. From a real dollar bill (!) to a Ken mask we may or may not still be wearing, let's just say we didn't wait too long to RSVP.
