LONDON - Take a well-deserved break from exploring the catwalks and enjoy a delicious collection of cakes & fancies in an Afternoon Tea inspired by some of the UK's finest designers. Available from just £39 per person from 17th to 26th February in the stylish and tranquil Podium Restaurant and Bar at London Hilton on Park Lane.

Styled to perfection by Executive Chef Anthony Marshall is an assortment of high-fashion bakes and biscuits inspired by Mary Kantranzou, Florian and Lucy Choi.

Gracing a chocolate red carpet are deliciously curated shortbread biscuits, designed to imitate a 'little red dress' coated with a red glaze and layers of iced flowers, paired with a quintessential shoe and finished to perfection by donning a chocolate platform heel.

Relax and enjoy freshly made sandwiches including classic combinations such as smoked salmon and horseradish crème fraiche on malted seed, cucumber, chive and cream cheese and prawn cocktail with lettuce.

A captivating middle tier showcases tasty treats such as mandarin dome chocolate puck's, mint & white chocolate tarts and chocolate raspberry parfait, combined with an understated palette of elegantly infused strawberry and pistachio tarts, replicating the strong and feminine silhouette of Florian's handbags. All included alongside a traditional but stylish array of freshly baked scones, in a choice of plain, chocolate chip or raison, to be generously layered with a heavenly filling of your choice, praline chocolate spread, clotted cream and strawberry jam.

This collection of carefully designed luxuries is the perfect opportunity to sit and reflect on the amazing pieces shown at London Fashion Week, rest your feet and sip on a warm cup of Twinings tea or a refreshing glass of Pommery champagne.

Designer John Edwards of Florian London said, "We have really enjoyed working with the team at London Hilton on Park Lane to create sweet treats that reflect not only great craftsmanship but also our design philosophy of timeless elegance and fun."

Referencing a previous design inspired collaboration with the hotel in 2016, Lucy Choi stated 'I am delighted to collaborate again with the Park Lane team on this unique and playful approach to afternoon tea. My shoes are a reflection of the sophisticated, modern woman and I think the edible design really captures that.'

The Confessions of a Fashionista Afternoon Tea is priced at £39.00 per person or upgrade to a Champagne Afternoon Tea for £49.00.

Located in the heart of Mayfair, London Hilton on Park Lane is a charming destination to visit at any time of year. Situated minutes away from the hustle and bustle of The Strand and the West End's famous bars and landmarks, it is the ideal venue to escape during London Fashion Week.
