There are few things more British than high-tea and couture, especially when they are both found at the classically British The Savoy hotel. The Fairmont Managed hotel has a rich history forging affiliations with Britain’s most luxurious fashion tastemakers. It comes as no surprise that The Savoy would chose British couturier Suzie Turner for their next haute collaboration.
Salon Couture High-Tea with Suzie Turner is having its official debut on Wednesday 6th July, and continuing the first Wednesday of every month thereafter. The fashion-forward partnership will be bringing back the the salon-style fashion shows of the 1950s and the couture shows once held at The Savoy. Fashion houses like Christian Dior once showed their second collection at The Savoy. In fact, this show was so successful that the Queen requested a separate private viewing the following morning for members of the Royal Family, including her daughters, Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret. Suzie Turner is now drawing inspiration from the choreography of such shows, with models being taught to walk in the fashion of classic salon models.
Salon Couture High-Tea with Suzie Turner will present 10 to 12 looks from the couturier’s highly anticipated collection. Guests will be able to admire the intricate pieces while having curated pairings of tea, a welcome cocktail accompanied and a selection of delectable sandwiches, cakes, scones and bespoke éclairs, decorated with intricate sketches of Suzie Turner designs. All under the stunning glass-domed atrium found in the Thames Foyer space at The Savoy.

Since 1990, she has been has been utilizing the finest in British craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail to create a truly special couture experience. Every element of design and production is completed in-house in their London Atelier to create bespoke gowns that bring her clients’ dream dresses to life.
