The latest designs in seating include Mandarin, Limewash, and phantom and many other options, while lounge concept furniture provides the perfect space for guests to relax. Linens, tables, lighting, glassware and even cutlery can also be themed according to your chosen décor.


  • • Venues – with an abundance of event venues found across London, functions of all sizes are catered to in options ranging from hotels to nightclubs, halls, private venues, arenas and many other choices. Venues should be chosen for their proximity to Somerset House, which is where the main Fashion Week events take place, as well as their capacity for your guest list, and their overall look.
