Alice Temperley: Fashion Designer

Five Questions With Designer Alice Temperley

Alice Temperley has been lighting up our radar so much we had to learn more about the British designer, who is riding a serious wave of worldwide popularity right now thanks in part to the loyalty of two rather well-known British sisters we know as Pippa and Kate Middleton. Kate has been spotted several times in Temperley, in pretty dresses and recently in a frilled shirt from Alice by Temperley on her North American tour, while Pippa wowed the world in the emerald green gown she wore to the royal wedding reception. The successful British designer has been creating her feminine line of clothing for a decade now, inciting romance via Temperley collection and channeling London's rock-n-roll heritage with a feminine twist within her contemporary line Alice by Temperley. With the release of her latest Resort 2012 collections, we are as obsessed as ever. Alice's delicate, detailed dresses and separates inspire the fun-loving romantic in us, and they also make us a little obsessed with Alice herself. We caught up with the designer to find out what's jazzing her up right now.
