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, email or call Langton’s on 056 776 5133. 

You know us here at STELLAR Towers, we’re dedicated followers of fashion, eager to jump on the next harem pant, shoulder pad, or knee-warmer bandwagon, (well maybe not the knee warmers.) But there’s one trend that’s got us thinking, and not just about what shoes will match it. Ethical fashion is a term that’s been bandied about for quite some time now. Not just en vogue because some trendy celeb has been spotted in an organic cotton tee or vintage coat, this is one trend that might just have the sustainability to outlast the season. 

However with lofty folks in far-off fashion capitals talking about organic this and ethical that, it’s tough for us lay fashionistas to know where to start in making practical, affordable steps towards a more sustainable wardrobe. Thankfully, a group of Irish ethicalistas (yep, it’s a word) have set up  to sort out the fact from fibs and give you all you need to know for dressing ethically and stylishly in Ireland. 

And for the thrifty among you, one upcoming Re-dress event might be the soundest wardrobe investment you’ve made all year. Rather than splurging 80 quid on another new dress, learn how to make 5 new dresses and more with the Crafternoon Tea Design Day organsed by Re-dress. You’ll get a crash course in all things up-cycling. Learn how to alter your existing threads, and begin to make new ones and with a follow-up intermediate course on offer, you’ll be a dab-hand at dress-making in no time.
