absolut mode...



there's nothing like a pink vodka, beautiful gallery space and a versace bikini in the middle of november to get the fashion spirits up and the launch of the absolut mode collection, in the loft space this week, did just that...


the launch celebrated the designs of 5 innovative and exciting irish designers for absolut vodka as well as the designs of past collaborators including versace, manolo blahnik and hugo boss..top music, drinks and fashion ensued, with the clothing and exhibition on display..stylist and editor aisling farinella curated the exhibition and was there on the night to say a few words...the highlight, for me, was the short film showcasing the irish designs in a beautiful moonlit backdrop of our fair city...

 more pieces at the exhibition include designs by helen steele, simone rocha, eilis boyle and sorcha o' raghallaigh...


laser cur leather, cobweb-like lace, cocoon shapes and chandelier - inspired silhouettes...i had my favourite but i'm not going to tell...

these manolo blahnik boots are amazing !!

the exhibition runs til the 20th and is  well worth checking out..i was tempted to post so many more photos but resisted in the hopes you will pop in to see the work in person..the calibre of irish design is astounding and so inspiring... it was incredible to rub shoulders and chat to the designers themselves who were more than excited to be a part of the project..
