The art of great service is central to any restaurant, but a rather different artform was on show at a Manchester branch of La Tasca last week – that of fashion.
The brand has several Manchester-based restaurants, one of which – in the city centre Deansgate area – hosted its own fashion show.
The brand has been undertaking a project with fashion and art students at Manchester College – the idea being to fuse food and art in a way that inspires both students and diners.
The students have been developing fashions themed around Spain over a three month period, and their efforts were put on show on April 24th at the Deansgate La Tasca.
"We really enjoy getting involved and working with members of our local community and we couldn’t be happier with the success of last night’s event," enthused brand operations director, James Picton.
"Manchester College’s creative talent was utterly incredible and all their hard work shone through – the students should be really proud of themselves."
But it wasn't just fashion that played a part in the event, as the show also included pieces from students working in the fields of graphics, art and textiles.
These students had been asked to put together decorative screens that were displayed next to the fashion catwalk.
It comes after La Tasca's Deansgate branch underwent a period of improvement from which it reopened just recently.
A fresh Sangria bar is now part of the eatery, and its interior has received a new look.
It's all linked to La Tasca's ongoing development, under which most of its eateries in the UK are getting revamped.
"The restaurant looks amazing and I’m sure our sangria bar will go down extremely well with Manchester residents," said Mr Picton of the Deansgate revamp.
