An afternoon of all things luxury at the Marylebone Hotel

It’s not everyday you find yourself at a fashion show of a highly reputable fashion designer, surrounded by flowing champagne and an exquisite afternoon tea to go with it. Sounds like every woman’s dream right?

Once a year the Marylebone Hotel are kind enough to organise and showcase the latest designs from luxury London designer L.K Bennett at their modern restaurant, The Pantry at 108. A fabulous and convenient spot for lunch, for which I might add, have found myself here on numerous occasions.

This is the second year in a row that I have been invited to such a special event and every time I have not been left disappointed in the slightest. That afternoon I had been out for a tasting menu at Circus so was a little worried about whether I could fit in an afternoon tea on top of this but surprisingly I wasn’t as full as I had anticipated which meant, you guessed it, more room to indulge in lavish treats.

To begin the late afternoon occasion, there was a champagne fuelled reception with light snacks of battered fish bites and plenty of mouth water canapes before we were shown to our tables for more of the bubbles and as an Aussie would say, stuffing of the cakehole (excuse the slang)

At the gracefully laid out table we found a goodie bag placed on the Edwardian style furniture and an assortment of scrumptious items such as gourmet sandwiches, beef wellingtons and gorgeous fruit topped fluffy meringues. You can also find a number of these delectable treats on their afternoon tea menu (gluten free as well).

The fashion show kicked off there after, with the models strutting their latest collection between the tables of the townhouse styled restaurant. This collection is yet to be featured in store, so I must admit that I felt rather special being able to catch first glimpses of their winter/spring pieces.

Plenty of gorgeous green & deep coloured outfits were on display and a spot of bling from the handbag and shoe range which is always a crowd pleaser.

Big thanks to Olga for inviting me along to this sophisticated evening of high class fashion and food. I really couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the festive season and as always, its such a pleasant experience popping by the Marylebone to be greeted by such warm, hospitably people.
