Last nights Temperley show marked the brands 10th anniversary of business. In light of this occasion Temperley returned home to London after four seasons of showing at New York Fashion Week and I was right there along with Elle, Grazia, many other major fashion editors and celebrities, including Mark Ronson, Josepheine de la Baume and Jacquetta Wheeler to mark this event.
Choosing the beautiful surroundings of The British Museum as the venue for their Autumn/Winter 2011 show was synonymous with the luxurious collection which was inspired by Venetian fans and named ‘The Unfolding Picture.‘ This coming of age collection took Temperley back to its heritage, focusing on opulent evening wear, cocktail dresses and Knits. Heavy embellishment and intricate stitch work was used on luxury heavy silks and delicate tulle. The colour palate was one of champagnes, creams and mink mixed with shades of gold and bursts of rich reds making the elegant and feminine dresses more extravagant and breathtaking.
Here are some snaps of the backstage action and the shows grand finale. I will be posting my favourite looks from the collection later but for now to see a video of the full show visit http://www.temperleylondon.com.
