Londons swish The Berkeley hotel has given its super Instagrammable Prêt-à-Portea afternoon tea a very fashionable makeover to celebrate the highlights of the AW19 collections.

Newbies strutting their stuff down the finger sandwich runway include Molly Goddards finale dress (think Killing Eves Villanelle) alongside the Jacquemus micro handbag that went viral all over social media.

This season also features Moschino as a a velvet pistachio and mascarpone cream delice with salted crumble base, casually topped with a one-million dollar bill and Richard Quinns floral gown and latex boots re-imagined as a legs akimbo pecan chocolate sponge topped with white chocolate and framboise mousse.

Fendi storms the show as a lemon sablé biscuit piped with super glossy royal icing celebrating Karl Lagerfelds buttercup yellow raincoat from the designers last collection for the Italian fashion house.



Emilia Wicksteads red velvet gown, inspired the Godfather, comes in the form of a red croustillon-covered choux bun, filled with uber rich Gianduja crémeux and roasted macadamia nuts, and topped with whipped ganache and a pretty red sugar bow. Spoiler: its intense.

The most grammable of the bunch is Molly Goddards pink showstopper: a neon netting fantasy made with spun sugar encasing a cinnamon financier filled with Pink Lady apple mousse and apple compote; along with the cute almond and blackcurrant flavoured Jacquemus Le Micro Chiquito handbag.

Fashion insiders, including model Erin OConnor were invited by Head of Pastry of the hotel, Mourad Khiat to try out the tea and in their honour, will have an on-trend piece from their own wardrobe whisked up in cake form.
