African Fashion Week London

Over the course of two days [Friday and Saturday] London opened her doors to the first ever African Fashion event to be held on British shores. Over 50 different designers showcased their work, with great emphasis taken to try and spread the word of African culture and versatility. Below are some of the pictures taken at the event.

A Vodka Face Lift

From a young age I’ve always been told not to judge a book by its covers, but as far as these covers go, i’d have to be held guilt for not adhering to that saying. A recent project launched by Absolut Vodka saw 18 different artist coming together, to individually produce what can only be seen as cutting edge creative pieces of art. The project entitled Absolut Blank has seen the usually bare and lifeless exterior of the Absolut Vodka bottle – transformed into a canvas of colourful intricate, imaginative & vibrant objet d’art. Below are some of my favorites.

 

Since the launch, other artists have joined the Absolut Blank campaign, including Shanghai based artist Lu Xinjian and this is what he came up with.
