“Maintain face (and shape) in front of LFW models by enjoying the specially created offerings from London's most fashion and food-conscious restaurants.”

As the hoards of fashion-types descend upon the Capital for the unveiling of the anxiously awaited SS11 collections next week, some of London's finest bars and restaurants have specially created a stylish mix of fashion-friendly offerings to draw the beautiful people in.

Tom's Kitchen at Somerset House
Open daily
Situated in the thick of the Fashion Week action, Tom's Kitchen at Somerset House will provide on-site sustenance for the ravenous crowds from 8am until late.

J Sheekey
14th - 27th February
Just a short strut from Somerset House, J Sheekey will be offering a glass of Pol Roger Pure Champagne with half a dozen oysters for a very reasonable £15.75 per person. With no added sugar and fewer calories, Pol Roger Pure is a favourite within fashion circles.

Hush
18th - 23rd February
Head Chef David Rood has created a special set menu in celebration of London Fashion Week. Featuring a guilt-free tuna salad alongside a decadent warm chocolate pot, the menu (£25 for two-courses, £30 for three-courses) aims to please models and spectators alike.

Fifth Floor
18th - 23rd February
In true fashionable spirit, Fifth Floor Bar at Harvey Nichols has created a collection of eight designer inspired cocktails especially for LFW 2011. From the Galliano (honey, cream and Galliano liqueur) to the My Queen (Beefeater gin, Cointreau and vanilla), they have every style covered.

Aubaine
18th - 23rd February
Catering to fashionistas on the run, Aubaine are offering a Rush Hour take away menu for £9.99. Available from each of their four locations, the menu includes a main course, smoothie and dessert, all enriched with ingredients to keep skin glowing, hair shining and energy levels high.

Babbo
18th - 23rd February
Bearing in mind that stick-thin models and spaghetti never bode well, Babbo's head chef Douglas Santi has created a special menu for Fashion Week that showcases a range of fresh, healthy and flavoursome Italian dishes.

Altitude 360º
18th February
The newly launched London Sky Bar, within Altitude 360º, will play host to the official launch party of LFW 2011, with the stunning, panoramic views being outshone only by an equally glittering crowd. Strictly by invitation only, darling.

Coinciding with London Fashion Week, LadyBlonde.com has just launched a new and unique menu analysis service for all restaurants endorsed on the site, whereby diners can quickly and easily receive personalised advice as to what to eat in selected restaurants to meet particular dietary goals and requirements. So don't let the thought of dining alongside a runway model put you off your food, to use the service simply find a restaurant and click on the Menu Analysis link on the right.
