ANM Weekend Inspiration
On Saturday 24th November, Rake’s Café Bar are inviting eco-conscious fashion and design lovers from London and further afield to enjoy an interactive brunch workshop with well-known fashion duo, VIN+OMI. Whilst sipping on bottomless cocktails on tap and sampling Rake’s brunch favourites, guests will get the chance to get crafty and upcycle items of clothing that are particularly close to their heart.
In a world still churning out trendy throw-away fashion pieces at breakneck speed, the idea of upcycled or refashioned apparel can be an anomaly but it is a continuously growing trend and one that VIN+OMI, who are known for their innovative approach to eco-fashion, pioneer.
The eco-conscious duo, who kicked off this year’s London Fashion Week, will provide one-to-one style consultations on how to bring pre-loved items of clothing back on trend through unique and exciting upcycling techniques. Guests will be able to work on individual items and will have the choice to paint, embellish or completely change an outfit to create a new look. At hand, they will be able to pick from lettering, sequins and other accessories. Finished creations will not only revamp winter wardrobes with the season’s latest trends, but may even provide the perfect festive gift for a loved one.
In the meantime, and in order to get the creative energy flowing, bottomless cocktails on tap and dishes such as the buttermilk chicken burger with chipotle ketchup, walnut waffle and lemon crème fraiche as well as the signature Rake’s Benedict will be available for guests to enjoy, making this the ultimate fashion brunch experience.
“We are thrilled to have partnered with Rake’s Café Bar and to be part of such a forward-thinking brunch concept. We hope to encourage attendees to continue to think about the environment and to consider changes they can make to items in the future before simply throwing old clothing away,” comment Vin+Omi.
Rake’s Café Bar, the day to night drinking and dining destination, located at luxury lifestyle Andaz London Liverpool Street hotel aims to bring creative local talent together through a unique interactive brunch concept as part of the Andaz Salon initiative, a series of locally inspired events that deliver cultural experiences and serve as creative inspiration for Andaz guests and visitors.
“We are always looking to champion the area’s creativity and diversity, and partnering with VIN+OMI is the ideal way to celebrate this. This brunch concept taps into key ethical issues around the environment and sustainability; which we are excited to support” said Nils Frey, General Manager at Rake’s Café Bar
VIN+OMI are creative partners of Andaz London Liverpool Street and are currently showcasing their SS19 collection throughout the hotel. Items from the AW18 collection will also be available at Rake’s to provide inspiration for the guests creations.
