Okapi Ladies Lunch – Chiltern Firehouse

This week Okapi held a ladies lunch at Chiltern Firehouse in London. As the name suggests the location was once a fire station. Upon arrival guests including Zeze Malee, Lucia Liu and Lucianna Miller enjoyed peach bellinis in the courtyard. From here they took their seats in the intimate private dining room where they were treated to a select viewing of the 2014 collection. Bespoke Okapi candy decorated the table where guests enjoyed an array of seasonal dishes. The complete Okapi collection can be viewed here.
