Alice has long been a favorite of The Three Sisters and when they sought to develop their multi brand designer bridal boutique, Temperley went straight to the top of the hit list! Having worked with Tempelrey since the boutique opened almost 5 years ago, The Three Sisters' relationship with Alice has gone from strength to strength, each year wowing us with her new avant-guarde, lux-bohemia collections. Here she shares her insider secrets exclusively for Les Trois Soeurs and we are sharing them with you... shuush!

 

What do you consider to be the key components that define 'The One' when it comes to finding the ultimate wedding gown?

The perfect dress encompasses functionality, effortlessness and how it makes you feel. It's so important to stay true to your individual style; trust your own instincts and always look authentic. If you're unsure about which design of dress to go for, try on as many styles as you can until you find The One - it's difficult to know until you try and you might just be surprised as to which style suits you the most.

How would you sum up your new collection? What are you most excited about and can we expect any surprises?

The Seraphina collection is timeless, etheral and free-spirited, and is inspired by 1950s eveningwear and the old Hollywood glamour of the 1930s. The collection features pre-Raphaelite inspired high-necked sashes, sheer embroidered tulle panels and cascading silk chiffon capes, which add characterful modernity to the collection. I love to mix decadent elements with modern shapes for an eclectic and unique contrast.

What are the unique qualities of British bridal design and how does your new collection celebrate great British style?

As a designer I'm very involved in the whole process, with attention to detail and the quality of the fabrics being the key elements. Along with my team, I work continuously to reasearch fabrics and embroidery as it's so important for me to find new inspirations and detailing for our bridal collections. The whole collection is a celebration of craftsmanship and artisan detailing.

What bridal trends are you tipping for 2016?

This year we're seeing the continuing popularity of the romantic and fairytale wedding with it's etheral styling, lace and tulle. Victorian and vintage is another trend we've seen a lot of in the FW16 runway catwalk shows so expect to see much more of this in 2016. We're also seeing a shift to the more contemporary, as couples are no longer getting married in the conventional way, and we're seeing an ever-increasing demand for shorter styles, separates and wedding party dresses, as the line continues to blur between bridal, fashion and couture.
