We have just seen the Beatrice 2012 collection and it has expanded, beautiful and varied collection with styles to suit every Temperley bride.
The collection features new designs in a variety of shapes, from delicately embellished ethereal gowns to structured full skirt and lace styles. The versatile Avalia dress, inspired by 50’s couture, is a shorter style in sumptuous silk with an emphasized waist and a detachable long skirt, while the Grecian inspired draped Laelia Dress has delicate three-dimensional flower appliqués on the bodice for an exquisite touch.
Embellishments throughout are intricate with hand-applied crystals, stitched embroidery and hand folded flower and ribbon detailing. The collection also features voluminous tulle appliqué skirts, modern structured strapless options, and elongated body skimming silhouettes in luxurious silks and fine French laces, all with the same timeless, feminine and ethereal nature that is the Temperley handwriting.
Temperley Bridal also offers accessories including decadent head pieces and brooches, embellished sashes for the waist and wrists and an expansion of shrug and veil categories in beautiful materials such as rabbit fur and embellished French laces. In addition, each dress in the Beatrice 2012 collection has a delicate blue ‘forget-me-not’ flower embroidery on the inside for the bride’s ‘Something Blue’.
‘It is an honour when any woman chooses to wear your clothes, but when you are selected to create their wedding dress, there is no higher privilege. Beatrice 2012 has options for every Temperley Bride – for the decadent church weddings, the barefoot beach bride, to the modern city hall affair. Each dress has to be the perfect blend of functionality and fantasy; a bride must never feel overwhelmed by her dress but allow them to be the ultimate version of themselves.’ Alice Temperley, MBE
