We're never one to leave a birthday unnoticed, particularly when it's a benchmark like your big two-five. So, when we heard that Ted Baker London was about to celebrate its 25th anniversary, we immediately got our calendars and balloons and started planning the British brand's silver anniversary right here in NYC.
Come Thursday, May 16, we'll toast to Ted Baker London's health in proper style at Ted's Grand House on Fifth Avenue and 48th Street from 6 to 9 p.m., and you're invited.
Naturally, we had to tap a hostess for the evening that could represent Ted Baker London's distinctive, natty English chic. Thus, you'll be spending the hours with the stylish, lovely import Louise Roe of Fashion Star, the MTV UK hit, Plain Jane and the recently announced new Style Network show Style Pop, premiering this summer. At the bash, you'll enjoy British tipples of Hendrick's Gin dashed with Fentimans Rose Lemonade and sweets from England's own Hotel Chocolat. There's plenty of fashion to be had as well with a celebratory 25% off all clothing in store and a special gift with any purchase of...wait for it...$250 or more.
But that, as they say, is not all. Ted Baker London is also celebrating its silver anniversary with Ted Baker's Around the World in 25 Years — an online collection of stylish stories complete with a couple of smashing contests. When you RSVP, you'll automatically enter yourself for a chance to win a round-trip ticket for days of indulging in proper British pastimes — whiskey tasting, falconry, clay pigeon shooting, and more — at the historic Dalhousie Castle outside Edinburgh, Scotland. In addition, Instagram a creative snap of your favorite Ted Baker London piece with the tag #Teds25Years and share on @Ted_Baker for a shot at a $400 gift certificate.
