The Pelham Hotel - Kensington15 Cromwell Place, South Kensington, London, SW7 2LA

The Pelham, an elegant boutique hotel in the heart of South Kensington, is pleased to launch its playfully vibrant fashion-inspired menu in line with the opening of The Victoria & Albert Museum's latest exhibition: Introducing Mary Quant.

The 60's Mod experience, designed in partnership with luxury event planners La Fête, draws on the history of the British icon who has been immortalised by fashion iconography as the originator of the miniskirt to present a colourful selection of decadent savouries and luxurious treats, all carefully prepared by the hotel's Michelin-starred Chef Alfredo Russo and his team.

From mini-dresses to vibrant prints and makeup, the Afternoon Tea experience acts as a guide to the British High Street and the life of Dame Mary Quant - a great introduction before being whisked away to visit the highly anticipated V&A exhibition. Menu items include 'Swinging London': dainty finger sandwiches of chives, butter & salmon or cooked ham and light mustard on spinach bread, whilst punchy sweets will include 'Bazaar': an open macaron topped with whipped cream, a variety of raspberries and dulcey raspberry coulis that has been creatively encased in a Quant-inspired nail varnish bottle and 'The Dame': a quintessentially British Victoria Sponge Cake, complete with icing sugar and an almond marzipan flower.
