Big British Invite - Punk and Liberty Prints

Hopping across the pond? British Airways and the British tourism board hosted a fantastic party to entice us Yankees to visit.  They did all the right things, making their "Big British Invite" party a celebration of fashion, food and brilliant cocktails.

There was a tribute to Punk fashion, highlighting designers like Rick Owens, Gareth Pugh and Vivienne Westwood.  The anarchist style will soon be the theme of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's upcoming exhibit as well.

Liberty London showcased their beautiful prints and scarves.  They gave demonstrations on various ways to tie them in every chic way.  You can check out their video demos on different styles here.

The tradition of high tea was honored with a sampling of Sanderson Hotel's Mad Hatter's tea service.  Cocktails inspired by a traditional constable's "bribe" was given a high tech treatment of applewood smoke infusion by expert mixologists.  Other libations included gin and lagers from the country.

I had a great time and being the sucker that I am, I am quite eager to visit London very soon.  Perhaps when I receive my invite to Kate Middleton's baby shower?
