Temperley London spring 2017 collection
What are your best tips for brides on finding that one perfect dress?
Stay true to your individual style; trust your own instinct; always look like yourself and not someone else on the day.
What excites you the most about your newest collection? What defines it?
Introducing beautiful silk trousers and embellished tops, shorter cocktail lengths as well as adding accents of soft blushes to the collection with touches of gold embroidery and creating a shimmering sequin silver dress perfect to party the night away.
The new collection is regal and ethereal with goddess-like delicate, floaty, romantic dresses.
Who is the bride you design for?
I design for the confident, feminine and effortless Temperley bride who comes in all sizes.
What is your favorite thing about Bridal Fashion Week?
The excitement of showing the new collection … whilst meeting with buyers and press.
What have brides been asking for that you’ve incorporated into your designs this season?
There is definitely an increasing demand for contemporary designs as people are no longer getting married in the conventional way.
What’s new in the bridal world that has you taking note?
Separates, a new relaxed bohemia. Also alternative wedding locations and a demand for shorter dresses and the wedding party dress.
After the crazy time of planning and executing, do you have a Fashion Week secret weapon for recovering?
I have a beautiful little boy and wonderful friends and family. Going back to them is the best way to recover. Also boxing and a lot of yoga!
Unrelated to work, what’s the number one thing you won’t forget to squeeze in during Bridal Fashion Week?
A visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
