time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,

Unless there is a theme for the event, I would say the best description would be ‘Smart Casual ‘. Meaning dress or smart trousers and top for ladies with suit or jacket and trousers for men. A tie would be optional.
