The first London Fashion Week of the year has begun, resulting in fashion lovers flocking to the capital from all over.
If you’re in London for the five-day event, don’t miss out on one of these highly fashionable afternoon teas.
The May Fair
As the official hotel for London Fashion Week, The May Fair has offered a great hotel package for the event. But if you missed out, it’s not too late to enjoy what the hotel has to offer.
Their El Dolce Semplice afternoon tea has Spanish and Italian influences, making it perfect for fashion lovers. Enjoy a trio of bruschetta, amaretto scone, and churros with chocolate sauce.
The Berkeley’s Prêt-à-Portea has to be the ultimate afternoon tea for Fashion Week. Now in its tenth year, the fashionable tea is celebrating its anniversary with ten of their greatest hits.
Sample their ten favourite creations, including a ginger biscuit in the shape of Manolo Blahnik’s Hangisi pointy toe stiletto and Simone Rocha’s embroidered tulle dress as an eclair filled with salted caramel crème patissière.
For something a little edgier, how about a punk-inspired afternoon tea? The rebellious musicians of the ’70s were fashionable in their own way.
Items on the menu are inspired by songs by the likes of Sex Pistols, The Stranglers, and The Jam. There’s even a raspberry and lime mouse with a tiny mohawk. If you’re feeling fruity, get the Lust for Life cocktail to go with it.
Fashion is an art form in itself and it’s often closely related to other types of art. While you’re enjoying London Fashion Week, try the art-inspired afternoon tea at Rosewood London.
The current treats on the menu are inspired by the likes of Damien Hirst, Banksy and Mark Rothko.
Remember to take a break during busy fashion week. There’s not much more fashionable than afternoon tea in London.
