Absolut Original

I was thrilled when photographer Cliona O'Flaherty asked me to get involved in work she was commissioned to do for the Absolut Original Exhibition (for the Absolut Fringe Festival). Not just because it involved all things cake, pink and girlie but also because it was to be a first food & fashion collaboration with fabulous stylist Aisling Farinella (ok, and also because I got the get my sewing machine out!)

Cliona (along with 15 other artists) was given the same brief Andy Warhol was in 1985 to 'be inspired by the absolut bottle'. The small print are curating the exhibition and after the festival each piece will be submitted for inclusion in the International Absolut art collection in Stockholm. How exciting!

Anyhow, I won't reveal the finished masterpiece just yet (the preview exhibition is tonight so I'll tell you more tomorrow, absolut hangover dependant!) but here's some very early stages of work in progress snaps in the meantime...
