- No reviews.
- Rake’s Café Bar
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, in an initiative to bring creative local talent together 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.
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, with a 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.
During lunch Vin and Omi will come and talk to you about what you want to achieve from the workshop. When you purchase your ticket, please select one of the below options and give us an idea of what you would like to achieve. The more information we have, the better we can help provide the right materials.
For the more daring there will be basic sewing machines available, please bring own machine if you have one as there’ll be limited availability.
1. UPCYCLE / RECYCLE a garment or combine two or three garments
2. ALTER a garment - take it in, add a belt, etc. (Please sends us a picture of the garment and let us know what you would like to achieve with it)
3. PAINT a garment
4. EMBELLISH a garment by:
- Adding vinyl lettering
- Adding sequins / ribbons, etc.
- Anything else!
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.
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.
“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,”
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.
