As LFW descends on the capital, W London hotel has announced the return of its Finishing Touches fashion week takeover.
This year, it’s all about providing fashionistas with the fuel to look good, feel good, go longer and stay later. Services include skincare consultations from AWAY Spa, luxury skincare brand Natura Bissé, blow-dries by DryBy London, nail bar from WAH Nails, workouts by Gymbox, fashion patch customisation with The Makery, and much more.
Fancy getting in on the action? The schedule goes as follows:
Saturday, 18 February 2017
Morning (11am – 12pm)
With back-to-basics fitness tipped as one of the year’s top trends, W London has partnered with Gymbox to offer a fast-paced Lactic Jungle class. The workout fuses animal movement and HIIT, featuring moves including crab walks and bear crawls, and promises to re-energise and refuel.
After the class, recuperate with the hotel’s FUEL menu. Choose from nutrient-packed energy balls, tea-tox cocktails, including the Peachy Queen and Passion Smash and a FUEL dish such as the Superfood Salad, designed for a delicious boost.
To book you’ll need to email: email@example.com
All day (10am – 6pm)
Look good and feel good with Dryby’s blow-dry bar, where you can beautify locks ahead of hitting the F-Row. From the sexy, rock chick hair of London, to the beach waves of Rio, DryBy will be offering a collection of five classic hairstyles.
Say goodbye to chipped talons with London’s coolest nail bar, WAH Nails and get red-carpet ready with bold and bespoke designs.
Heading out for a night out on the town? Finish off your look with MDM Flow’s lipstick touch-up, transforming pouts into colourful and kissable lips.
Sunday, 19 February 2017
All day (10am – 6pm)
On Sunday, fuel your glow with a series of revitalising services from the hotel’s AWAY Spa. Skincare partner Natura Bissé will be on hand with its team of beauty experts, offering bespoke skincare consultations. Release your inner goddess with celebrity tan expert James Harknett, who will be offering a self-contouring facial tanning service, as well as giving top tips on how to get the look at home. For some well-deserved pampering, opt for the AWAY Spa’s revolutionary Perfume Colour Therapy massage, set to transport you into instant calm during London’s busiest weekend.
With personalisation continuing to be a major trend on the catwalk, The Makery will be hosting a denim customisation and patch workshop, where guests will be able to try their hand at upcycling their own wardrobe.
Looking for style inspiration? This season, W London has invited designer Anne Bernecker to present “Reuse, Reinvent, Revive – the sustainable Slow Couture Collection”. Each inspiring design showcases reclaimed vintage denim which has been reinvented and revived through luxurious craftsmanship to create unique, one-of-a kind garments.
Across the weekend, strike a pose in W London’s photobooth and get a #WFinishingTouches polaroid print. The best shots shared on Instagram will be in with the chance of winning luxurious prizes, from an overnight stay to a treatment at the AWAY Spa.
Finishing Touches will take over the W Lounge at W London – Leicester Square on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th February. All services and activities are complimentary with any bar order and available on a drop-in basis*.
