Afternoon Tea with a Twist


Who knew you could have your Chanel handbag AND eat it, too? The Prêt-A-Portea fashion tea which takes place at the Berkeley Hotel in London has finally jumped the pond. The tea, which features fashion-friendly treats taken right off the most recent runways, will be available at Cafe BG at Bergdorf Goodman during New York Fashion Week, starting February 13 from 3:00-5:30 each day. The trendy eats will include Michael Kors’ red and blue striped Regatta dress done as a mousse, Chanel’s quilted handbag as a petit four, an edible Christian Louboutin crystal pump complete with the signature red sole, as well as looks from Thakoon, Oscar de la Renta, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Marchesa. Beware, you may suffer a bit of buyer’s remorse from eating such fashionible goodies.
