Manicured guests at the Wakeley party make delicate pinches for our canapes!

For Amanda Wakeley’s evening, we felt that immaculate presentation, sophisticated flavours and light yet satisfying canapes would work perfectly.

Of course, these were to be served by our experienced staff, who find the way to be discreet yet irresistibly friendly!

Amanda Wakeley’s flagship boutique in London, where we served canapes to her guests

Amanda Wakeley styles Angelina Jolie and Helen Mirren. She has just unveiled her new Autumn/Winter collection, ‘Midnight Moth.’ For a special ‘behind-the-brand’ event presented by Conde Nast Traveller, Wakeley’s dazzling designs were presented at her flagship London boutique.

Contrasting colours and vivid prints to revive us in the cooler months

“I’m always travelling and absorbing people, places, cultures, nature and architecture,” Amanda explains. “Travel is my biggest source of inspiration, plus it gives me the space to think. Earlier this year, I visited Beirut for the first time and found the mix of ancient and modern exquisite, and the live-for-today spirit totally intoxicating.”


Sharp tailoring framing fluid lines are a couple of Wakeley’s signature elements

The fashion gurus at Conde Nast Traveller describe Amanda Wakeley’s ‘Midnight Moth’ collection as: “filled with rich embroideries and embellishment, bold prints, textures, jewel-like colours and ashes of metallics, made for nocturnal creatures.”


Leopard print speaks to classic glamour

Amanda Wakeley adds: “I was influenced by New York in the 1970s and the golden age of Studio 54. It’s an eclectic fusion of bohemianism, rock’n’roll and disco.” Well, rock on, we say!

It really was a (disco)ball catering for such a luxurious event! We relished adding indulgent offerings of our own, in the form of our coveted canapes.


Our canapes will be served to your guests on rustic wooden boards, complete with vibrant flowers, for eye-catching offerings
