Catwalk Cocktail Collection at The Athenaeum

Inspired by A/W15 collections, the cocktails at the five star Athenaeum Hotel channel this season’s killer catwalk looks. If you’re a snappy dresser, try Tailored, a classic Chambord and strawberry drink with a floral finish. Feeling zingy?

We don’t know about you but we’ve got the giggles just reading the names, so who knows what we’re going to be like having knocked back a few…

The luxury boudoir lingerie brand will be showcasing their ‘Hardcore Romance’ collection (oo-er), supported by Hippy Poppins costume design and filmed by Fashion TV. There’ll also be a three course dinner with plenty of champagne and DJs spinning the decks ‘til late. Better get your (shiny new) dancing shoes on then…
