    Temperley London celebrates its 10th anniversary year in 2011 with its namesake creative director, Alice Temperley, MBE, heading up the House of Temperley with a design signature that has made her one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary British fashion.

    Alice Temperley’s timeless, feminine designs combine meticulous detail and embellishments with an English eccentricity and personality drawing on everything British; Temperley is the modern day ‘Cool Britannia’.

    Following the success of the launch collection in 2000 at London Fashion Week, the first Temperley London boutique opened in 2001 on Colville Mews in Notting Hill, London where the head office and design rooms are still situated.

    This year sees the first year anniversary of ALICE by Temperley, a contemporary sister line created to fulfill a need for an everyday Temperley look in a more accessible market.

  • Bridal has grown to be an important part of the Temperley offering after the first bridal dresses were created following Alice’s own wedding to Lars Von Bennigsen, the CEO of Temperley Ltd, in 2002. There are now exclusive Bridal Salons in the London Mews and Los Angeles, Melrose Avenue stores with a full bridal collection of bespoke, made-to-order and current collection pieces, for private appointments only.

    The House of Temperley has also expanded into lifestyle with Temperley scented candles and has plans to move into homewear, menswear and childrenswear.

    The House produces 13 collections a year including; Cruise and Pre-Fall across the Temperley London and diffusion ALICE by Temperley line and 2 made-to-order bridal collections a year and key collaborations with leading British names such as the launch of Barbour Gold Label by Temperley in 2011.

  • The company operates 3 stand alone stores in London, Los Angeles and Dubai, and online stores for both lines at: temperleylondon.com and alicebytemperley.com. The lines are also currently available in over 200 doors across 35 countries worldwide.

    The past ten years have earned the House of Temperley critical acclaim and devoted fans around the world, dressing Royalty to the red carpet. Amongst many others, Temperley London fans include; Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton, Demi Moore, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Reese Witherspoon and Claudia Schiffer. ALICE by Temperley has been worn by a range of fans including Emma Watson, Jessica Biel, Beyonce, Rihanna and Dakota Fanning.

  • While constantly being expanded in breadth, the House of Temperley always stays true to its philosophy; appreciating what women want with creations that exist outside of the trend of the moment and always flavoured with a sense of Alice’s individual ‘magpie’ style.

    The World of Temperley and its design philosophy is set to extend its influence, transforming it from one of Britain’s leading luxury brands to an all-encompassing lifestyle.

Designer Betsey Johnson Spring 2012 Fashion Show Mercedes Benz Fashion Week

Betsey Johnson has never been one to follow trends and her spring 2012 collection was no exception. While many designers are leaning towards textured tops and mid-length skirts, Betsey chose sheers and loosely flowing bottoms, which were a pleasant divergence from her typical bubble and tulle skirts.

The sheer was, assumedly, to showcase her newly-blossoming lingerie line, to which she featured in her final walk , having the panty-clad models carrying A and T balloons (which stand for A Tisket, the lingerie line).

Betsey complimented her ultra-feminine style with ultra-high platform stiletto heels (giving a few of the models a run for their money). The collection was filled with Betsey’s go-to patterns like floral, cheetah print, and skulls, printed onto full-length skirts, wide leg pants and harem-style rompers. And, of course, Betsey’s fabulous line was not the sole entertainment of the night. Surprising audience members, Betsey danced down the runway, skipping up and down as the models took their final walk. At the end of the night, Betsey Johnson entertained.

Designer Raul Melgoza attends the Luca Luca Spring 2012 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at The Stage at Lincoln Center on September 9, 2011 in New York City.


Summary: Raul Melgoza, chief designer of Luca Luca, described before the show how he wanted the Spring 2012 collection to be all about sensuality. This is what he delivered and to a great standard.

Raul combined beautiful feminine and relaxed pieces with bold vibrant colours, including lime green and aqua. Raul also cleverly adopted one of Prada’s old tricks and used turbans throughout, this addition added extra class and zing to the designs. The silhouettes were generally relaxed, yet sensual. He used open backs, exposed shoulders, and took advantage of the models gorgeous legs with sexy thigh-high splits.

The material consisted of everything that is sensual, from silk to satin, all of which achieved a beautiful finish to his great tailoring. I loved the high-waisted trousers tucked into Raul’s perfect looking jackets. Some of which included stripes and prints.

Towards the end of the show, Raul presented us with a few gowns, including a white polka-dot piece and a luxurious aqua blue gown paired with a tiny metallic gold belt and bracelet. Raul wanted to give us sensuality and sensuality is what we got.

Supermodel Skinny: Victoria Secret Model Candice Swanepoel To Thin?

1 Apr Victoria-Secret-Model-Candice-Swanepoel-103454

Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel has made headlines after appearing alarmingly thin during a recent photo shoot.

The entertainment website Hollywood Life called her “scarily, skeletally, stick-thin,” adding, “That’s not how the human body is meant to look.”

Swanepoel revealed her skinny frame while modeling the lingerie line’s new swimwear at Los Angeles’ Mondrian Hotel. With stick-thin legs and a hollowed stomach, the once-curvy model stood out among her fellow Victoria’s Secret angels.

Swanepoel, a 22-year-old South African, looked significantly skinnier than in photos just two months ago, when she was the face of the company’s Valentine’s Day campaign. Her most recent modeling card from the agency IMG says she wears a size-8 dress, but she appears much smaller than that.

Swanepoel, who recently landed the cover of Victoria’s Secret 2011 swim catalogue, has become one of the label’s most popular models.

Perhaps her busy schedule’s responsible for her dramatic weight loss. In November, during New York fashion week, Swanepoel told ABCNews.com that she was having trouble keeping weight on.

“Actually, this year my problem has been more putting the weight on and getting muscle on because it’s been really busy,” she said. “I’ve been traveling around like crazy. I get skinnier if I’m very busy. I’ve been eating steak and everything, so I’m actually looking forward to eating some lighter food after this.”

ABC News

 

Summary: It’s no secret, Victoria’ Secret models are always thin, but is Candice Swanepoel too thin?

You would think no one could possibly look thin while standing next to Victoria’s Secret models Alessandra Ambrosio and Adrianna Lima, but Candice Swanepoel does. Her bony legs are accentuated in the above pose when she bends forward. Her thighs appear to be the same size as her knees! She’s built like a deer! While some people find this sexy, I think Candice Swanepoel is too thin. I am fascinated by looking at her picture though because it’s not often you see someone, even a size zero model, with a gap like that between her thighs. She’s almost got herself a Barbie body. From the waist down anyway…

Do you think Candice Swanepoel is TOO thin? Hot – or not?
