Samuel Pepys Sneak Peek for Limited Edition London at Trafalgar

One of the first jobs back was a last minute job with Cake Group to design a peep show for London
and Partners.
.
Here you can see the coverage about it in The Evening Standard.
.
The unique Pepys Show installation was located in Trafalgar  Square to give visitors to the capital
a sneak peek into some of the  incredible events coming up in the London diary from now until the
start of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
.
I came up with different ideas and brought to life different events with bespoke scenes and costumes
to get a taste for what’s to  come. The inspiring events included an exclusive Leonardo da Vinci
exhibition at the National Gallery, sleeping under the stars at ZSL  London Zoo, celebrating the
Queen’s Diamond Jubilee at a sparkling  exhibition at Buckingham Palace, a jewel inspired afternoon
tea, an  evening of 1940s glamour and champagne at the Churchill War Rooms and  welcoming the Year
of the Dragon in China Town.
.
Here are a few of the things I came up with.
Dinner at Churchill's Cabinet War rooms (inside a cabinet).
.
Encrusting (painstakingly) a tea cup, sandwich and cake to illustrate a 
Bijoux afternooon tea at the Langham Hotel inspired by the jewelry designer, 
Stephen Webster.
