One half of one of STELLAR’s favourite blogging duos, Stylebitches, the goigeous Blanaid Hennessy has been on to us about a new event she’s running that’s pretty darn exciting. The inaugural ‘Absolut Style at Set’ event takes place this Easter Bank Holiday weekend (April 2nd,3rd,4th), in the opulent surroundings of the new Set theatre at Langton’s House Hotel in Kilkenny.
A three-day event of vintage fashion, furniture and films, along with makeovers, style talks, live photoshoots and performances followed by fun nights out, all in association with ‘Absolut’ Vodka.
The line-up goes a little something like this…
On Friday, guests can relax into the plush SET seats and indulge a full day of fashion inspired movies, from ‘The September Issue’ to ‘HBO’s Grey Gardens.’
Saturday and Sunday are the official ‘Absolut Style at Set’ days, with a vintage fashion and furniture shopping centre, the Gosh cosmetics makeup room, the Kerastase hair salon, along with live photoshoots and performances, The Courtyard food fair, and, for the beleagured blokes, chuck them in The Men’s Den in Harry’s Bar, for live sport and whiskey tasting.
Guests will also have the opportunity to get fashion advice from top stylists Annmarie O’Connor (The Irish Examiner) and Laura Cunningham (TV3) and interiors advice from premier interior designer Simon Rawlings (Creative Director of the international design company, David Collins Interiors).
At night time, SET will be transformed for two full-on club nights out:
Saturday Night is ‘The Stylebitches Night Out’ , with a ‘demented’ dress code, ‘Absolut’ cocktails, crazy performances, neon warpaint and while the ladies themselves, The Stylebitches, take to the decks.
Sunday Night is the ‘Soul Kitchen’: DJ Davey Holland plays urban and soulful sounds, with a retro dress code, Absolut’ cocktails, make-up ladies and alcoholic cupcakes, (sound’s like our kind of cake).
And that’s only the start of it, with lots more to be announced. In you’re interested, (eh, yes please!) or want to pick up some tickets, contact http://www.set.ie, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Langton’s on 056 776 5133.
