Hospitality clothing specialist Studio 104 has designed and produced new uniforms for the recently refurbished Quaglino's restaurant in London's Mayfair.
With a brief to emulate the restaurant's striking new look, Studio 104 used a mixture of matt and shiny fabrics, which dazzle in the restaurant's mirrors.
Studio 104 founder Jane Porter explained: "We were honoured to be part of such a high-profile restaurant reinvention. Quaglino's was the first restaurant at which the Queen dined publicly so we knew they wanted to maintain the elegance and glamour of its rich heritage".
Taking their inspiration from the Quaglino's cigarette girls of the 1990s, Studio 104's creative team designed an iconic couture hostess dress, which has fast become a talking point at the cocktail bar. The men's suits have a contemporary slim fit with gold edging and trim detail and gold Jacquard to create a glamorous cabaret feeling.
The gold and black Art Deco-inspired palette and geometric pattern reflects the restaurant's glamorous past and is carried through the restaurant, encompassing the new interior design, artwork and graphics.
Paul Jenkins, purchasing director at Quaglino's operator D&D London, said: "Studio 104 bent over backwards to accommodate our every need. The team worked well under pressure and understood the flexibility needed to pull off such a high-profile launch. The end result is a stunning uniform range that works as a practical uniform solution".
