The Dorchester backs British fashion talent Teatum Jones for London Fashion Week

Promenade

This September, The Dorchester’s Promenade will be transformed into a catwalk in honour of British designer duo Teatum Jones, who will showcase their autumn/winter collection at the luxury hotel.

On Tuesday 18 September, during London Fashion Week, fashionistas who book The Teatum Jones Fashion Tea will get an exclusive sneak peek of the label’s newest collection, including a printed silk scarf called ‘The Dorchester’, which will go on sale at Soho department store Liberty the same day.

Teatum Jones’s A/W 2012 collection is inspired by Grimm’s fairy tales and 1940s’ Hollywood crime-scene photography – the landscape designs mix dark greens with electric-pink lurex tweeds with cuts that create an ultra-feminine silhouette.

As they watch the show, guests can tuck into The Dorchester’s traditional afternoon tea, which includes finger sandwiches, homemade scones and a selection of elegant pastries, plus an ‘Odyssey’ Champagne cocktail specially created by The Bar at The Dorchester’s team.

Afternoon tea sittings for the Teatum Jones Fashion Tea take place at 2.15pm and 4.45pm. The afternoon tea costs £52, excluding service charge. To book a place, call 020 7629 8888 or email restaurants.TDL@dorchestercollection.com.
