As I'm hopelessly limping behind with my fashion week pics anyway I've decided it can't hurt to take a little detour to the Dorchester and get tipsy on Elisir di Giulietta – one of the dang-bang-delicious cocktails which you can – if you do like my childhood hero (and a now grown-up) Eloise and live in a luxury hotel or just happen to be part of the jet-setting world – drink in one of the European hotels of the Dorchester Collection.
BUT, hold your ice cubes… These are not just ambrosial drinks (as if you could call a concoction with Elisir di Santa Novella ever just 'a drink', it must have healing properties surely) – each of these cocktails stand for one of 5 shortlisted designers for the Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize 2011: Giulietta by Sofia Sizzi, Julian Louie, Setareh Mohtarez, Siki Im and jewellery designer Anndra Neen. (If you want to read more about the prize or the designers, just click on the links.) Personally I think they are all amazing. So, Good luck to them all & Cheers!
Big thanks to Jackie and Alpana for inviting me to a wonderful and informative evening.
