Back for a second year, Absolut Style at Set in Kilkenny is sure to be a great weekend. Reports from last year were all extremely positive and if I didn’t have a prior family engagement I would definitely be making a trip to Kilkenny for it.
ABSOLUT Style at Set 2011
ABSOLUT style at Set is back, and yes – 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.
FILMS, TALKS, FASHION, FURNITURE, BRIDAL…
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.
ABSOLUT Style at Set will host a Friday filled with free fashion films, while Saturday and Sunday shall be stuffed with vintage stalls, guest speakers, wine tasting,ABSOLUT Vodka cocktails, hair & beauty zones and so much more.
STANDS AT SET
This year we’ve mixed it up with vintage fashion, furniture and vintage-style wedding stands. Favourites from last year such as K Kajoux, Bonzie, Smoking Lily, Rebekah Patterson Millinery and Vintage Emporium join new and very welcome additions such as; Dandelion Daydreamer, Elsa & Gogo, Lark Vintage

This year also sees the return of the incredibly succesful ‘Style Nights Out’.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!
THE SET THEATRE
Langton’s SET theatre, designed by David Collins interiors, is an opulant and charismatic space, which will be reflected in the feel of the ABSOLUT Style at Set weekend. It is already a favourite for many performers, with one Irish comedian describing it as ‘what it must feel like to live in a wedding cake.’
COME AND PLAY!
Over this packed weekend, you can…
watch movies, get your hair done, try on some clothes, eat some food, have drinks with the girls, get your makeup done for the night ahead, wear your new clothes, head to SET, watch a performance, have a dance, get your face covered in neon paint, dance some more,go to bed, get up, go to a fashion film, learn something from one of Ireland’s top stylists, buy a necklace, get your hair done, get your nails done, get your face done, eat some food, taste some wine, have some candyfloss, watch a new performance, dance til you drop…
