Style @ Set...

People! ABSOLUT Style @ Set is back! (eeek!) And they say it’s bigger than last year! Following the success of the inaugral fair in 2010, this full on fashion extravaganza will now take place in both the SET Theatre and the Ballroom of Langton’s House Hotel, Kilkenny on 22/23/24 April 2011.

Organised by writer/stylist Blanaid Hennessy, ABSOLUT style at Set is no ordinary fashion event, no MCs or the usual catwalk shows, it’s simply another world in which to escape for a few days. And it is thoroughly worth it...
ABSOLUT Style @ Set will host a Friday filled with free fashion films (so one can sit back with friends and enjoy a good giggle or tear (as in the case for me and my friend last year). Saturday and Sunday will be filled to the rafters with vintage stalls, guest speakers, wine tasting, ABSOLUT Vodka cocktails, hair & beauty zones and so much more. I promise you, you WON'T get bored.

This year they've mixed things up with vintage fashion, furniture and vintage-style wedding stands. Favourites from last year such as Bonzie, Smoking Lily and Vintage Emporium join new and very welcome additions such as Dandelion Daydreamer, Elsa & Gogo, Lark Vintage and many more! Full lists of stands and info will be available on their facebook page and website over the next few weeks. 

This year also sees the return of the incredible ‘Style Nights Out’. Last Year it was the Mad Hatters Tea party which was amazeballs! This Saturday night will host the shenanigans of the ‘ABSOLUT YOU’ the brand new night from ABSOLUT featuring interacitve sets by DJs ‘Synth Eastwood’, audio and visual art designed by You and teapots of intense ABSOLUT Vodka cocktails by ABSOLUT. Sunday night will feature all kinds of old school, with renowned 80’s tribute band ‘Spring Break’ taking to the stage, followed by some 90’s hip hop and dance tunes from our DJ. Alternative/fancy/whatever you like dress is recommended!

People who have come before I need not convince you, you know it was amazing and shall be again. Newcomers, COME! Seriously, was so much fun last year and I cannot wait for this year.
