Submitted by on Thursday, 4 July 2013 | No Comment

Designer Alice Temperley has been chosen to feature her designs on the runway of the Coronation Festival Catwalk Show.

The event will take place at Buckingham Palace from July 11-14, in honor of the Queen’s 60th year on the throne. This is a major success for the Temperley brand, especially as the event aims to celebrate British fashion.


John Lewis = Success

With the success of her Somerset line for John Lewis, it’s no wonder Alice was chosen. The line became the fastest selling brand to launch at John Lewis… ever! I certainly remember seeing the range when it first released and thinking that every single piece was wearable, yet stylish. Temperley found the right balance that definitely appealed to many John Lewis customers who wanted affordable, fashionable pieces that could go from the office to an evening dinner easily. Shift dresses, silk blouses, cardigans and wet-look pencil skirts- the designer created a range which captured the modern British woman incredibly well.

New Additions for the Catwalk

Two exclusive pieces will feature in the collection and also in the Spring/Summer 2014 collection. “We updated Somerset classics by re-creating them in royal Balmoral tartan, including the best-selling high-waisted trousers and a chic waist-length cape, a silhouette that has become synonymous with the Somerset brand,” Temperley told Vogue. The new pieces should be a delight to admire when released.

A Designer With No Flaws

With fans such as Kate and Pippa Middleton, Temperley has not failed to impress. Her Spring/Summer 2013 collection represented femininity in a playful, yet sexy way. Her collection was inspired by the 1950s glamour era and paid tribute to the couture models of the time. “I like to work with a timeless mixture of contrasting influences,” she explained. I wouldn’t hesitate to call her collections timeless whatsoever. Temperley has proven that she can master the art of creating a variety of styles, using a variety of fabrics. From jewel-encrusted dresses in the Spring/Summer 2013 collection at London Fashion Week to cape coats for the Somerset collection at John Lewis, Temperley’s career is just getting started
