Anyone for tea???

Being from the U.K .. afternoon tea is a custom which I adore !! When I was asked by Eddie Shanahan from the CIFD (council of Irish fashion design )to be involved with a collaboration with the westbury hotel in Dublin for a art of Millinery afternoon tea extravaganza!!excited was not the word !!!!
Five established milliners Aiofa Kirwan,Davina Lynch,Margrett O Connor Leonora Ferguson and myself Wendy louise knight were asked to create a hat each ,which was given to Rey Encarnacion the hotels amazing head pastry chef
Rey created a blueberry cheesecake with stable Breton base which echoed perfectly my Wedgwood blue peachbloom felt pill box hat ..the detail was amazing !!!
So if you like hats cakes and tea !!!! What are you waiting for !!!
The art of Millinery afternoon tea is running from 31 st August until 1 st October
The hats themselves are on display in the hotel
A amazing project
Thanks CIFD and the Westbury Hotel
