By | 28th September 2011

The Fashion Week circus is in full swing and The Dorchester Collection is showcasing a special fashion season cocktail menu celebrating the five designers who have been shortlisted for the 2011 Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize – exclusively at its hotels in leading fashion capitals: 45 Park Lane and The Dorchester in London, Hotel Principe di Savoia in Milan, and Le Meurice and Hôtel Plaza Athénée in Paris.

The shortlisted designers have collaborated with the Collection bar managers and creations include  Hôtel Plaza Athénée's Thierry Hernandez's Anndra Neen Ruby, a red mescal-based drink inspired by the Mexican heritage of Anndra Neen's Phoebe and Annette Stephens;  the JL by Julian Louie and Giuliano Morandin of The Dorchester London (Belvedere Vodka and Canton Ginger Liqueur) and Siki Im's heady concoction Silent Thunderbird (Maker's Mark Bourbon and a shot of espresso), on which he collaborated with Stefano Cossio of 45 Park Lane.

This autumn, the Dorchester will reward one designer with $40,000 to develop their brand, in addition to the opportunity to display their work during Paris Fashion Week in 2012 at Hôtel Plaza Athénée.
