As Dior comes to The V&A, experience our new package at The Kensington

Fashion lovers – it’s time for a treat. To coincide with the opening of the Victoria & Albert Museum’s newest exhibition, ‘Christian Dior – Designer of Dreams,’ The Kensington have launched a dreamy three-night package to indulge your sartorial senses. Featuring two tickets to the exhibition and a round of bespoke cocktails in the hotel’s K Bar, this exclusive package is the perfect way to experience the most talked about exhibition of the year.


‘Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams’

This February, The V&A Museum welcomes ‘Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams’ for a decadent journey of haute couture fashion from 1947 to the present. The magical exhibition follows the history and impact the founder and the six following artistic designers have had on the fashion world. Don’t miss the ‘The Ballroom’ where the fashion house’s most iconic dresses will be on display: Princess Margaret’s 21st birthday dress and Charlize Theron’s Swarovski crystal-encrusted gown from the J’Adore Dior 2008 campaign are amongst the pieces to be admired.

Couture cocktails

Once back at The Kensington, head down to the hotel’s K Bar for a round of ‘The Corelle’ – a bespoke cocktail inspired by ‘La Ligne Corolle’, Dior’s first haute couture collection. Served in a cut crystal glass flute, this elegant drink will reflect the sculptural silhouettes that became part of Dior’s signature style. We recommend following this with a tasty dinner at The Town House or, should you prefer to carry on with cocktails, trying a few more tipples from The K Bar’s extensive drinks list.

Live the Suite Life in South Kensington

Following your day of culture and cocktails, there’s no better place to rest your head than one of our divine Signature Suites. Each of The Kensington’s spacious apartments offer four poster beds, contemporary furnishings and splendid views of South Kensington, making them the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring the city. The hotel’s enviable postcode makes it an ideal location for the following days activities too. South West London is a shopaholics paradise: the charming boutiques of the Kings Road are just a stone’s throw away, and glamorous Knightsbridge is just one stop on the Piccadilly line. Home to Harrods, Harvey Nichols and an abundance of designer delights, this is a must-visit location for anyone looking to inject some new season style into their wardrobe.
