Papyrus at New York Fashion Week: The Shows!

I’m always super excited for New York Fashion Week, and I love that Papyrus is a part of it too! I always look forward to seeing the beautiful cards they have on display (I always stock up)! This September, Papyrus celebrated their 11th consecutive season at NYFW: The Shows! Every season with Papyrus is better then the last!

Papyrus’ week long activation had so many fun things to check out at the center of Skylight Clarkson, specialty drinks, complimentary cards (so gorgeous!), and so much more!

Everyone was enjoying the Papyrus Café at Skylight! It was the perfect place to relax, refresh, and check out at all of their beautiful cards and fun activations between shows! Papyrus has always been known for their premium handcrafted paper goods and for their attention to detail, and they have always had a connection to fashion and to the arts. Papyrus has had so many beautiful collaborations with premiere artists and world known designers.

How gorgeous is this display?! I can spot two of my favorite designer collaborations – Judith Leiber Couture and Lela Rose! These cards make such a statement – I even framed some of them as artwork in my home!

Everyday, there were 2 different cards being handed out by the Papyrus team. To make things even more fun, you are able to send them to your loved ones and spread the joy and beauty of Papyrus straight from their café at Skylight Clarkson!

New York Fashion Week is always exhausting and show goers need a place to refresh and recharge! I loved how the café was so much more interactive this year! The beautiful display in the back with the cards and coffee books were such a beautiful touch and there were fun custom compliment cards to hand out for fun! The drinks were delicious and I loved all the specialty drinks they had – depending on how my day was going, I would grab a coffee, tea or LifeWater!

I was just obsessed with these displays showing different elements from their cards. The attention to detail that every Papyrus card has is amazing, and I love how handmade and unqiue each card truly is. They are just so special!

So many goodies! These were my favorite drinks! The lavender latte was a huge hit with everyone, and I love everything lavender! And I couldn’t stop drinking the Vietnamese coffee! I just love sweets, so the adorable macarons with the signature Papyrus hummingbird was a great way to start fashion week!

One of the most special and unique parts of The Café by Papyrus was a hand-lettering artist, Angie Durbin, who was at the café everyday to customize fashion week inspired illustrations and select Papyrus cards! I mean, how beautiful is her lettering!? Can you guess which phrase I picked?

I also loved the beautiful and on-trend design of the stationary! I picked the Central Park stationary for myself and the New York skyline stationary for my brother!

How perfect did this turn out?! This a super cool photo-ready art illustration by artist Deanna First It was so fun to be able to take such a special piece back with me from fashion week! Papyrus just thinks of everything!

There’s nothing I love more than a beautiful card, and as everyone knows by now, I only get my cards from Papyrus! They truly make every moment you are celebrating so special, and even with an already amazing event like NYFW gets taken on a whole new level by Papyrus every season! I can’t wait to see what they come up with next season!

Always the most fun when Papyrus is involved!
