“You didn’t understand what I am. I am love. I am pleasure. I am essence. I am an idiot. I am alcoholic. I am tenacious. I am. I simply am
― Frida Kahlo

Channeling the spirit of Frida #howehosts put on a truly memorable press night, an explosion of rose petals, brightly coloured posies and a Mexican feast lit by candlelight on behalf of the Grosvenor’s sponsorship of ‘Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up’ at the V&A and the upcoming launch of Frida’s Belgravia in Bloom (19th – 26th May).

We welcomed the Grosvenor’s guests to the shop with a Mezcal Paloma, a punchy grapefruit and mezcal cocktail, a smokey surprise for those who hadn’t before tasted Mezcal, the Agave based Mexican spirit, before heading down to the #howekitchen for dinner. Claire Wilcox, curator of the V&A Frida exhibition gave an insightful talk before everyone tucked into an array of Mexican inspired dishes.
