We were joined by Ronnie Cooke Newhouse and Cara Delevingne to host a London Fashion Week Sunday supper to celebrate the launch of our creative collaboration with Cara.
As they entered the Claridge’s Ballroom guests were transported from the town to the country, from the beauty and grandeur of a town hotel to an idyllic English country scene. 160 silver birch trees lined the walls of the room, and in the spirit of the Autumn Winter season the trees had shed their leaves, with 25,000 scattered across the floor.
Claridge’s served a quintessentially English menu of Thyme-roasted Chicken and Sirloin of Beef with all the trimmings, followed by Cara’s favourite puddings of traditional Sticky Toffee Pudding and Apple and Blackberry Crumble.
Silver birch swings topped with candles and six types of wild mushrooms including chanterellles, girolles, enoki and hon shimeji sourced from the New Covent Garden Market were suspended above banqueting tables, with beautiful dappled lighting filtered through the trees providing an atmosphere inspired by alfresco dining on a crisp autumn evening.
