London Fashion Week Treats

London Fashion Week kicks off today and anticipation is high for fashions from Burberry Prorsum, Christopher Kane, Markus Lupfer (a personal favorite of mine), Sophia Webster and many, many more!

As a nod to each season’s fashions, the amazing culinary team at The Berkeley hotel in Knightsbridge create charming confections to celebrate the best in show. 
For Autumn/Winter 2014 the Pret-a-Portea collection played homage to Diane von Furstenberg’s 40th anniversary of the iconic wrap dress with a shimmering golden ginger biscuit. Other fashion favorites included Moschino’s quirky “Yellow M” handbag, Dolce and Gabbana’s whimsical night owl, Valentino’s mini dress and Jimmy Choo’s monochrome chic Cayla zebra print bag.

And, for your viewing enjoyment while you decide which treat you want to nibble on, here is live streaming of London Fashion Week! Just press play! 

Enjoy the shows! And….the weekend!! I wonder which fashions will become confections!

Traveling to London – Afternoon Tea at The Berkeley

Our family will be traveling to London this summer, so I have been gathering tips from friends, researching websites and planning our itinerary. One of the things that I’m looking forward to is a proper British afternoon tea! 

There are many wonderful hotels that host afternoon tea. But, as a lover of fashion, I simply must experience the Pret-a-Portea at The Berkeley Hotel. Inspired by the current season’s fashions, cakes and pastries resemble what’s coming down the catwalk. Here’s a look at the Spring/Summer 2013 menu! Manola Blahnik’s slingback, Tory Burch’s violet bikini and Jason Wu’s leopard hatbox look as delicious and stylish!

What do you think….cat walk or cake walk? Have you been to London? Do you have a favorite place for tea or any restaurant recommendations?
