Hilton Prague Old Town and Josef Klir Say “I do”
May 11, 2011
PRAGUE - Josef Klir, renowned Czech fashion designer, and Hilton Prague Old Town have entered into a partnership with the launch of a joint venture to offer tailor-made weddings by Josef Klir at Hilton Prague Old Town.
On May 3 at 9 p.m., the wedding bells rang in the Dvorak Ballroom of Hilton Prague Old Town and a three-course wedding menu created by Ari Munandar, executive chef at the hotel, was served to 200 guests. The menu included delicacies such as marinated beetroot with goat cheese and pine nuts and beef fillet Svickova with Carlsbad dumplings and cream sauce.
The dinner was served on porcelain made especially for the evening by the Slovak company Starorolsky Porcelan which Josef Klir has been cooperating with for several years.
A fashion show exhibiting wedding dresses by the designer which are available to purchase or to rent at the fashion atelier Joesf Klir, Vinohradska 53, Prague, was a memorable highlight of the evening. The catwalk marked the exclusive debut of Josef Klir’s collection in public, perfectly accompanied by “Klir’s Wedding March” composed by Tomanek Music Studio.
Guests were able to view Hilton Prague Old Town’s Wedding Penthouse Suite, which has been especially decorated by the designer for the evening. The two-storey suite was complemented with products from Josef Klir Home Design collection such as cushions and bed linen.
Guests were well looked after by the professional hotel team and a bartender from KARLOFF, the company supplying the event with a cocktail bar and other beverages. Guests also enjoyed Carte Noire coffee in special cups designed by Josef Klir and drinks from the Red Bull bar.
