In Europe, Three Cities, Three Fashion Weeks

Fashion-themed tea and cookies at the Berkeley, in London.

Even the cocktails will be stylish. Following New York Fashion Week: the shows, being held from Sept. 8 to 15, London, Milan and Paris celebrate spring 2017 fashion with their own events. The runway aside, there’s plenty going on in hotels in each city where travelers and locals alike can get a taste of the scene without attending an actual, invitation-only show. It’s a nice way to feel, well, fashionable.

■ The Berkeley, in Knightsbridge, is hosting two fashion-themed tea classes — one on Sept. 16 and the other on Sept. 19, both from 2 to 4 p.m. Guests will receive a personalized apron and spend the afternoon with the property’s pastry chef, Mourad Khiat, learning how to ice Jimmy Choo cookies, cut out a Valentino handbag cake and whip up a Jason Wu mousse. They can enjoy the treats afterward in the Collins Room, the hotel’s dining room. 150 pounds a person ($196). Reservations can be made at 44-207-201-1619.

■ On Sept. 19 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., St. Martins Lane, in Covent Garden, will host Christian Dior’s international makeup artist, Jamie Coombes, for a backstage makeup demonstration. Mr. Coombes will share his latest tips from London Fashion Week. £30; includes a Bellini.

Como Metropolitan London, near Hyde Park, has begun a partnership with the premium British accessories brand Gladstone, and during Fashion Week the brand will have a pop-up store in the hotel lobby.

About $18 each.

■ The Library Bar at the Lanesborough, by Hyde Park Corner, has a menu of three drinks on its Cocktail Catwalk menu. One of them is the Ruby Seduction, which includes cherry brandy, hibiscus syrup, Creole bitters and Champagne. The drink is served in a teacup with a layer of cranberry and cherry blossom foam; £25 each.

■ The Mandarin Bar at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London has teamed with the makeup artist Laura Mercier during Fashion Week for two chocolate cocktails, one alcoholic and one nonalcoholic, because Ms. Mercier loves chocolate but doesn’t imbibe. The Ershi kiss is made with Baileys, chocolate, raspberry and cinnamon (£18), and the Sweet Wugu has chocolate, raspberry, cinnamon and cream (£12.50).

The new boutique hotel the Franklin, in Knightsbridge, has a fashion-themed package that includes overnight accommodations, a five-course dinner paired with gin and Champagne cocktails and a £100 gift certificate to Harrods. Prices start at £650.
