London fashion week and a British summer fete... On one side, you have cutting-edge style, Couture and Champagne on the other there is home-made jams, giant vegetable competitions and a hot dog if you are lucky.
Last summer, however, the inaugural Fashion Fête event held on Covent Garden’s Piazza proved that you could channel the spirit of a classic British fete while keeping the style dial turned up to max.
This year’s event, held on the weekend of Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th September from 11am – 6pm, promises to be even better.
True glamour is timeless, so Vintage Patisserie will be adding a touch of class with their vintage inspired look. Enjoy a delicious cuppa in beautiful vintage crockery along with a scrumptious cupcake on the tea lawn.
To get truly in the mood, you can dip into a dressing-up box supplied by renowned vintage stores Rokit and Costume Boutique. Once you’ve selected your outfit, enjoy a make-over courtesy of Covent Garden hair stylists and top make-up artists.
Then, suitably clad, feel free to indulge in some of the more surreal events dotted around the Piazza, such as welly wanging. This being a fashion bash, the wellies are, of course, Hunter.
Keep your eye out too, for the constantly prowling fashion police, ready to restyle those who don’t meet their exacting standards, plus a design-your-own jewellery area courtesy of Tatty Devine, food and drink stalls and much, much more.
