The Berkeley Fashion Afternoon Tea, Prêt-à-Portea, is high tea with a fashionista twist. Inspired by the themes and colours of the fashion world, the menu is transformed every six months to follow the changing fashion seasons.
The current Autumn/Winter Prêt-à-Portea collection sees designers such as Manolo Blahnik, Yves Saint Laurent and Marc Jacobs grace the Berkeley’s tea stand as Prêt-à-Portea adds a creative twist to the classic elements of the traditional English afternoon tea with cakes and pastries resembling the latest catwalk designs for the style conscious.
