London Fashion Week is almost here and we are pretty excited. If you are also going then you might want to head to Voltaire, who will be hosting the fashion elite.
London – rightly recognised as a global style hub – will once again play host to the world’s fashion elite, as they bring all the glitz and glamour of their latest collections to the catwalk for London Fashion Week, 13th - 17th September.
If you want a share of the spotlight this year then head to Voltaire, the City’s destination Champagne bar located beneath Crowne Plaza London – The City hotel. The vaults of this grade II listed building, which once held prisoners under lock and key and later became bank vaults, is today home to one of London’s most exclusive destinations, featuring private booths and alcoves, VIP zones and personal table service.
From September 13th until the end of the month, Voltaire will be offering style-conscious Londoners a selection of cocktails (all £9.50) inspired by this season’s latest trends. Try the Spiked Rebel – influenced by the studs, spikes and leather of 90s punk – made from vodka, Sambuca, Maraschino liqueur, passion fruit puree, orange bitters, Blu Curaçao and garnished with an apple ‘mohawk’. The glamour of Hitchcock’s heroines that inspired many of the 2013 collections is also behind the sophisticated Marion Crane, made from Sipsmith London dry gin, Martini Rosso, orange bitters, Antica Formula and fresh lemon juice. For the ultimate decadence try the Midas Touch – Ysabel Regina cognac, Pink Pigeon rum, and apple juice – an homage to the striking metallic gold dominating the catwalk this year.
If you indulge in one too many Spiked Rebels, however, then give in to Fashion Week excess and sign up to Crowne Plaza London – The City’s unique A la Mode package. Combining an overnight stay with a two-hour personal shopping session with Front Row Stylist at one of London’s top shopping spots, this is the perfect way to make the most of Fashion Week.
Start by checking into your spacious room at Crowne Plaza London – The City before being whisked off by a private driver to your preferred destination; whether it’s the nearby trendy hotspot of One New Change, the couture houses of Bond Street, or the legendary department stores of Knightsbridge, you’ll be spoilt for choice in the fashion capital of the world. With their impeccable taste and in-depth knowledge of the latest trends, Front Row Stylist will get you a stunning look that’s ready for the catwalk.
