Alice Temperley’s Royal Designs on the Catwalk

Alice-Temperleys

ALICE TEMPERLEY MBE is one of the designers to feature in the Coronation Festival catwalk show - and we have a preview of her designs created exclusively for the event. To mark the occasion, Temperley updated two of the most popular pieces from her Somerset collection for John Lewis - which, as its Oxford Street store is a royal warrant holder, was invited to take part in the commemorative show.

Temperley's Somerset label is the fastest-selling brand ever to launch at John Lewis - so was a natural choice to represent the respected department store. The Coronation Festival will be held from July 11-14 in celebration of the Queen's 60 years on the throne, and will also pay tribute to six decades of British fashion with a catwalk show set in the palace gardens.

"When designing the Somerset pieces to be shown exclusively at the Coronation Festival catwalk we drew on British heritage and tradition - a quality that is intrinsic to the Somerset autumn/winter 2013-14 collection," Temperley told us. "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."

The two exclusive pieces will be shown on the catwalk alongside the Somerset by Alice Temperley spring/summer 2014 collection, and other own-brand labels from John Lewis. Following the unprecedented success of her previous Somerset collections, Temperley will expand her offering for next winter - adding lingerie and designs for younger girls to the range.
