Fashion designer Alice Temperley discusses the eclectic influences behind her romantic, whimsical designs, and shares her thoughts on treasures from the Maharajas & Mughal Magnificence collection.
British fashion designer Alice Temperley is best known for her designs that incorporate luxurious fabrics, elegant embroidery, detailed printed patterns and hand finishes. Since launching Temperley London from a hotel bedroom in 2000, she has dressed celebrities ranging from Demi Moore to Kate Moss. Now stocked in 37 countries, and with a six-floor flagship store in Mayfair, Temperley London has become a mainstay of the fashion scene.
The designer can trace her interest in textile and jewellery design back to her bohemian childhood in Somerset. ‘My nickname is Magpie,’ Temperley reveals in our video, ‘because I was always collecting jewellery.’
The appreciation of fine jewels is a family affair, it transpires: ‘The whole family has always really loved dressing up and wearing head pieces and costume jewellery. My grandmother used to have lots of amazing buckles and jewels, as well as a very large collection of beautiful lace that once belonged to Queen Victoria.’
