As someone who is a huge fan of afternoon tea, I had never been to the Merchant Hotel’s acclaimed high tea offering. This week I was invited to their “Fabulous Fashion Tea” event, combining, as the name might suggest, afternoon tea with the world of fashion.
The Fashion Teas are now in their 9th year, with the shows taking place every spring/summer and autumn/winter season.
Guests enjoy a fashion show whilst sipping Champagne and sampling a range of tasty sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream, and a large selection of succulent sweet treats. (There’s also the chance to shop at the pop-up boutiques from the weekend’s featured retailers and designers.)
I attended the 1pm event today which was showcasing the David Yurman range from Lunn’s Jewellers. David is one of the biggest jewellery designers in the US and his stunning range is available exclusively in the UK and Ireland at Lunn’s of Queen’s Arcade, Belfast.
What a delight it was to see some of David’s spectacular creations, all while enjoying the mouth-watering food and drink. Tickets to the Fabulous Fashion Teas are £35 per person and include a glass of Veuve Clicquot Champagne, afternoon Tea, a goodie bag and access to the pop-up boutiques.
If you love food and fashion, this is for you!
