Prêt-à-Portea - The Berkeley

Much to the annoyance of our waist lines and bank balances, food and fashion rank highly on our list of obsessions, thus, we salute the mastermind behind The Berkeley's 
'Prêt-à-Portea' - which effortlessly manages to combine the two.
Dubbed a fashionista's afternoon tea, with designer biscuits and cakes inspired by the current seasons runway looks, we left wondering why all food can't be this pretty.

The couture Spring/Summer 2012 menu consisted of a 'replenished to your hearts content' selection of sandwiches, canapés and high-end sugary delicacies, along with a glass of Laurent Perrier champagne and one of the biggest pots of tea we'd ever seen.
The best part? We each left with a bespoke, bag shaped takeaway box which had been filled with an extra helping of fashionable treats.
Cue squeals of delight.
