Plaster busts for Louis Vuitton

Recently my plaster busts were invited to the hottest party in town -
the Louis Vuitton launch event for their 'Double Exposure' film series featuring Sam Taylor Wood. The press launch and special dinner were designed by creme de la creme set designer & event organiser Fiona Leahy who created the entire installation around my busts - all of whom were delighted to attend!

There were 40 busts altogether and 60 place settings at a 20 metre long table.











It was clever how Fiona collected together other random objects like the ones I use on the hats and dipped them in plaster to give them the same look.



Fiona kindly said it was one of her most fun projects - well it was certainly the most cool location my busts have found themselves in to date!























Fiona used my mini-plaster tassels (see below) for the place settings.
Apparently all the dinner guests loved my plaster busts - needless to say, I was thrilled!
See Fiona's blog too.




Here are some of my favourite shots from when Adelina (my intern) and I have taken the busts out and about.
