A sparking highlight of the preview day I spent at Frieze London was the Duro Olowu umbrella installation – specially commissioned to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of The Outset Frieze Art Fair Fund to benefit the Tate Collection (OFT). The Fund is organised and funded by Outset Contemporary Art Fund with support from Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts.
Two exclusive umbrella designs featuring Olowu’s signature fabrics were launched at Frieze London in October and are on sale at limited outlets, including the shops at Tate Britain and Tate Modern. One of the most sought-after designers working internationally, Duro’s designs, inspired by his Jamaican-Nigerian heritage and London upbringing, are a favourite of Michelle Obama, Uma Thurman and other trend-setters.
There are only a limited number of Olowu’s colour design umbrellas in existence (retailing at £85), and thanks to Le Méridien Piccadilly I have one to give away! If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning one of these gorgeous limited edition umbrellas, please answer the following question in the comments by midnight (GMT) on Wednesday, November 22:
Which anniversary is OFT celebrating this year?
A winner will be chosen randomly from all of the correct answers and announced on November 23. Please note: Due to the size of the umbrella this giveaway is only open to those with addresses in the UK. Good luck!
