FKA Twigs has curated the second installment of this year's Veuve Clicquot Widow Series.

The 28-year-old singer songwriter announced on Thursday (06.10.16) she will launch a new project called ROOMS as part of the events annual celebration of creative and cultural prowess, and the star has admitted this is one of her "most ambitious projects to date."

Speaking about ROOMS and her return to Veuve Clicquot's Widow Series, which is an annual homage paid to the widower and the revolutionary founder of the champagne business, Madame Clicquot, she said: "There aren't always opportunities to make your wildest creative ideas a reality, this is one of my most ambitious projects to date so I'm very excited to be bringing it to life for the Veuve Clicquot Widow Series."

The forthcoming installation will see performing arts, set and costume design, theatre and dance come together in an innovative display, which was directed by the brunette beauty, as well as the help of 12 artists who created the various other worldly realms.

The performance, which will be set in a 12 room installation area, will be narrated by a cast of 30 people and will follow the journey of DIAMAS in search of a spiritual and zodiac home, and will mark 150 years since the death of the trailblazer.

Meanwhile, other creative masterminds, including Gary Card - who designed the elaborate headpieces for the 30-year-old singer songwriter Lady Gaga -, beauty artist Isamaya Ffrench and set designer David White, as well as many other notable artistic figures, will be involved in this year's series.

Speaking about the project and FKA Twigs' involvement, David said: "I'm very excited to be working with Veuve Clicquot on their Widow Series ROOMS as it provides such an open and interesting platform with creativity at its heart.

"Introducing an innovative artist such as FKA twigs to the mix deepens and broadens an already rich collaboration with endless exciting possibilities."

The highly-anticipated venture will launch a private viewing on October 26, whilst tickets for the following days October 27 and 28, which the public are open to attend, will be available to buy online on Monday (10.10.16).
