Alice Temperley on her latest collection:
"The Temperley Bridal Iris Summer Collection: is a selection of classic Temperley bridal wear — timeless, romantic, and elegant.
Iris Summer 2015 contains six new dresses and a bridal coat, each bearing trademark exquisite beadwork and intricate embroidery using only the finest French laces and luxurious silks.
New shapes include the Celine dress with a flattering svelte silhouette and bias cut, characterised by a glittering pearl and Swarovski crystal embroidered panel that sits neatly inside a softly cowled, draped back. The Marine dress is made from delicate corded French lace and has a corseted body while the ethereal Petula dress is made from delicate silk chiffon, cut into gathers that emphasise and flatter the waist and bust. For an altogether more dramatic look, the April dress has a full train that falls in a drape from an open back while the addition of the Juliana coat in structured double silk satin offers a full length cover up with a flattering nipped waist.
To complement the dress collection, Temperley Bridal offers a selection of accessories including veils, shrugs and ornate head pieces as well as five new sash belt designs featuring Swarovski crystals and three dimensional tulle flowers.
The use of French lace, double satin and fine crystal applique inspired the romance of this collection, a feeling of British charm that plays out within the delicate touches and special details of each dress."
