A big congratulations to Boyarde Messenger, whose series of beautiful bottoms recently attracted the attention of the Benefit cosmetics team. After coming across an article about her work in The metro, Benefit found an opportunity for collaboration, finding similarities between the ethos of Boyarde’s work and their own initiative. Both parties focus upon the empowerment of women, seeking to bring out the inner goddess within. The benefit press team consequently asked Boyarde to exhibit her work at their latest press event at cork street on Wednesday 21st August. Her ‘painting on anything but paper’ approach to art practice fascinated all, and was very well received the press. The atmosphere was fantastic, complimented by a delightful selection of sweet treats and pink champagne. All in all, it was a very successful day! Keep an eye out for Boyarde, she is one to watch. Congratulations!
