Brit-based designer Anouska Hempel has a hungry palate for high drama whether it be in her couture fashion or the luxury hotel interiors, for which she is now more famous. For those who crave the dark, striped sculptured shapes of her gowns, slink into what was her very first entrée into hotels - Blakes. Each suite plays out like a one-off original design. From gilt-edge glamour through to crisp Provencale clean, the constant is a four poster bed. For those wanting to extend this experience into another country, try her no-less-flamboyant hotel - The Dylan - in Amsterdam. Alternatively, you can find sleek and sexy in her white-on-white eponymous luxury hotel in London - The Hempel.
