'Virginia,' situated in Holland Park London, became a mecca for designers looking for inspiration. John Galliano would regularly have mint tea sitting in the garden. Donatella Versace, Ralph Lauren and Donna Karan were frequent visitors. Experience a Virginia Bates vintage fashion show with accompanying band in the Queens Room.
