Fashion: The season's best-kept secret

The style set celebrate in secret every year and this Christmas's festive pop-up is a themed speakeasy in the heart of London's Soho. Masterminded by Patron Tequila, it will be hosted by fashion's favourite drag queen Jonny Woo, who will preside over cabaret acts, quizzes and DJ sets, from 29 November until the 1 December. Learn from top mixologists how to create exotic new cocktails, or sit back and ooze sophistication, safe in the knowledge that you've made it into one of the season's most exclusive seats.

3 Someone said "morning" to me. Was that a question ?

4 I am the biggest tourist ever.
