Last night, Bernard Chandran hosted his official London Fashion Week after-party. Instead of hosting the usual after show event in a club, the designer opted for an intimate meal in London's premier Malaysian restaurant, Awana.
"I really wanted to do something different and special," he said. "Rather than have a big party at a club I wanted to invite all of my friends and allow them to eat what I eat."
Guests, including Mr Hudson, Lady Gaga, Beverley Knight and Jimmy Choo, were served dishes such as chicken and beef satay and a variety of other traditional Malaysian specialities, all served by Awana's head chefs, Mark Read and Lee Chin Soon.
Chandran's collection received stellar reviews this season and continues to be a show not to miss, particularly by international press and buyers who continue to turn to the designer for creativity and innovation. His talents have earned him a following of celebrities ranging from Lada Gaga and Little Boots to Estelle and Rihanna.
