Fashion lovers are in for a treat this weekend, as The Merchant Hotel’s fabulous Fashion Teas return in sensational style. On Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th April, the 5*star hotel’s Rita Duffy Suite will provide a striking setting for four individual Fashion Teas, showcasing cutting edge spring/summer collections from a hand-picked selection of Northern Ireland’s top boutiques and designers. Excel Clothing; Art on Fashion & Harper at The Merchant; Gráinne Maher and Goddess & Swift; and Ruedi Maguire will wow guests with their spring summer collections, alongside a fabulous champagne afternoon tea. Tickets to The Merchant’s Fashion Teas cost £35 per person and include an exclusive fashion show of your choice, served with champagne afternoon tea. Tickets can be purchased by calling The Merchant Hotel’s events team on 028 9026 2717. Funds raised from a luxury ballot at the events will be donated to The Merchant’s 2014 charity partner, The McDermott Ward at the Ulster Hospital, Belfast.
